Moss is a full service architecture and design studio located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Our work is diverse by design and allows us to explore the best design solutions across varied project types including residential, commercial, breweries and wineries, restaurants, retail, urban planning, and custom furniture. Our projects are mostly in Chicago and southwest Michigan. Our culture and projects reflect our values and we view life balance as essential. Moss is an atypical architecture studio wherein there isn’t a designated track trajectory – our passionate group of architects and designers have flexible hours and are free to explore how their interests outside of architecture can be incorporated into our studio, such as writing, graphic design, furniture and industrial design, construction, etc. 

We’re looking for a Project Architect | Designer with 5-10 years of experience in all facets of project design: programming, schematic design, coordination with clients and consultants, CD’s, permitting, bidding and pricing and CA. Bonus points for construction management experience since we build some of our own projects through our subsidiary, Moss Build.

In addition to strong design and technical expertise, we are looking for someone who is a creative problem solver and self-motivated who will take ownership of projects and integrate with our office environment. The ability to draw by hand, strong presentation, client engagement, communication and organizational skills are essential. We work on a diverse range of projects best suited for someone with varied interests. Our innovative and independent spirit allows for design freedom and flexibility. We also supply endless amounts of sublime coffee!
