A+I is an award-winning architecture firm that prides itself in doing inspiring work with inspiring people. Our 75-person firm is an ideal fit for seasoned professionals looking to engage with projects across the full process, from pre-design through construction, in a bright, supportive setting. We nurture an open office culture that prioritizes a healthy work-life balance, careful mentorship toward professional growth, and deep collaboration across a wide array of talents and disciplines.     

DESIGN:  We believe the best architecture comes through information.  We’re not formalists.  We believe program guides design, but great design transcends program.  We work at a broad variety of scales, from the object to the landscape, preferably in the same project.  We think and re-think until the unexpected becomes obvious.  

BUILD:  We engage in discourse through making. We build.  We are uninterested in theory unless it serves to improve the built work.  We embrace the practicalities of our profession: schedule, budget, gravity, clients.  Real limitations challenge us to be smarter, sharper, better.  We iterate through building. 

TEAM:  We embrace the richness of difference. We put our heads together and believe design should be passed around not down.  We seek trans-formative projects for people transforming the world.  We find fulfilling our clients’ needs fulfilling.  Our work is stronger because of multiple points of view.

  • Collaborating with design teams to specify and source material and furniture palettes
  • Maintaining and growing relationships with furniture, material, and product reps

  • A rigorous approach to translating a design brief or narrative into the appropriate solution tailored to each specific client
  • Familiarity with, if not expertise in, specifying, customizing, ordering, and/or managing the delivery of ancillary and systems furniture packages
  • Comfort with multi-tasking and collaboration within a context of fast-paced projects
  • Professional degree from an accredited institution
