For our growing Beijing studio, we are looking for a (junior) architect to join our team.

About us
We are a young, award-winning international architectural practice. Our main office is based in a lush courtyard residence in the historic center of Beijing, China, with a branch office in the Netherlands.

We are a full service architecture practice working with a small team of committed designers on one-off-projects. We offer a comfortable working environment, competitive wage and reasonable working hours. Our project portfolio and clients cover every aspect of architecture, ranging from small to large scale projects and academic research. Within the practice we prefer to work on projects that get build, and include construction supervision as a standard paragraph in our contracts. The atmosphere within our office is international, multidisciplinary, design-oriented and ambitious, but also open, non-hierarchical, and friendly. Please see our website for an impression of our portfolio and working environment. Current projects onder construction include China’s first sustainable home in Beijing, the world’s largest insect hotel as part of a Zoo-redevelopment in The Netherlands, a series of high-end hair salons, and two village regenerations in rural China. 

We combine practice with academic research at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and as such our co-founding partner Martijn de Geus has been chosen as keynote speaker for Asia’s largest architecture festival, KLAF 2019 in Kuala Lumper: as one of the ‘most important figures in architecture’
