Handel Architects is an award-winning, internationally recognized, architecture and interior design firm dedicated to bringing excellence to urban environments.  Our locations in San Francisco, New York, Boston and Hong Kong allow us to share ideas and design concepts across our network of offices.

What it’s like to work here

The San Francisco office is comprised of a group of talented architects, designers and support staff.  In our collaborative open studio environment, we share ideas, engage in each other’s projects and contribute to creating exciting and dynamic designs.  We celebrate professional and personal milestones.  We gather for Friday Breakfast, Happy Hour and Friday Forum.  We work hard.  And we have fun.

A flat organization allows us to do great work together without letting egos get in the way so we can focus on what we do best.  We bring passion, motivation and energy in designing architecture that will make a positive impact in people’s lives.

Who you will work with

You will work with design leaders and project teams who are innovative, smart, talented, and supportive of individuals’ professional growth.  We value the diversity of our people and their wide levels of experience within the profession.

What your role will be

As a Project Architect/Manager, you will be involved in the design and management of a comprehensive building project from inception to completion.  On larger projects, you will be a key member of a collaborative team; and on smaller projects you may independently manage all aspects of a project.  Strong organization skills are essential to balance multiple projects at different stages in the development process, from feasibility studies and concept design, to construction documentation and administration.  The role is suited for an articulate designer with practical knowledge of local planning and building codes.  As a strategic communicator and initiator, you will represent the firm to our clients, consultants, contractors, and industry peers, as well as respond to local government agencies during design review and entitlement processes.
