Company and Position Overview: West Architecture Studio is a small, award-winning, design-focused, residential practice based in Atlanta, GA with some occasional national and international projects. I am currently a one-person operation so the ideal candidate will possess and be responsible for a range of supporting skills. The position, being basically my right-hand person, I can promise you will learn a lot in a short period of time and get an exciting range of responsibilities and opportunities that you won't typically get at a larger firm and the work is never boring. And once you've proven yourself as a valuable asset to the firm, commensurate salary increases will likely come more quickly than at a larger firm. You will also likely get experience, not just in architecture, but also in real estate, property development, and building construction as I have a sister company, Lucid, that develops and sells contemporary speculative homes. Our office is located in a very vibrant part of Atlanta in the best walking/biking neighborhood in the city - less than 100 yards from the Beltline (a car-less path that encircles the city) and close proximity to many bars and restaurants as well as public transportation. 

Position Details:  I am seeking a mid-level Designer/Architect with 1-8 years of experience for a full-time position but may consider those seeking part-time or contract work or those seeking to transition from part-time or contract work to a full-time position in the future (min. 20 hours per week) if the fit is right.

Requested Skills, Knowledge, and Abilities:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Architecture is highly preferred. Those without an architecture degree would need to possess exceptional skills and experience specific to high-end residential design to be considered. 
  • Min. 1 year of experience in contemporary residential design or at least high-end single-family residential projects is preferred. Those lacking in residential-specific experience are still very much encouraged to apply but will need to convince me of their ability to adapt and shine in other ways such as exceptional design, graphics, presentation, or rendering skills.
  • Experience with townhomes, boutique multi-family, or small-scale commercial projects wouldn't hurt. 
  • At least some experience with putting together construction documents is required
  • Proficiency with AutoCAD, Photoshop, Sketchup, and Microsoft Office apps is absolutely required.
  • Those with proficient 3D modeling and rendering abilities - moving projects from Sketchup to higher-level 3D modelling/rendering platforms may be weighted more heavily in consideration.
  • The ideal candidate will have very strong graphics skills and comfortable with both 2D and 3D presentation graphics and experience across multiple graphics softwares.
  • This position will require you to help manage our social media efforts so desire to be engaged, marketing flair, and experience with that kind of thing will be appreciated.
