LIQUE Design Studio is seeking to hire a Project Lead (sometimes called Project Architect). As a project lead you will be responsible for the design and production of projects as well as coordinating with the project team to keep projects running smoothly and our clients happy. You should have plenty of experience across all architecture phases -  from design through construction administration - but especially in producing and reviewing construction documents.

Ideal candidates will be confident designers, capable of establishing and maintaining project schedules, and effective at managing design staff to assist meeting those deadlines. You must be a capable communicator, adept at coordinating consultants, clients, and contractors, with excellent visual presentation, written, and verbal communication skills. Although an architectural licensure isn’t required, all candidates should hold a professional, accredited degree in architecture.


  • Minimum 6 years of post-graduate professional experience in an architectural firm.
  • Master’s or other professional, accredited degree in Architecture
  • Architecture license or a path to licensure
  • Portfolio demonstrating design and architectural ability.
  • Eligible to work in the United States without sponsorship


  • Autodesk Revit - critical. If you do not know how to set up a project from scratch and develop it into a construction document set, this wouldn’t be the right position for you.
  • Adobe Creative Suite – Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator
  • Hand Sketching/other methods of design communication
  • Lumion (preferred)
  • Confident researching building systems, specifications, and design technology
  • Competent producing construction details for typical architecture systems.
  • Excellent design & visual presentation skills
  • Experience with MS Office including Excel, Word, and other similar typical, incidental professional software solutions.


Ultimately, we are looking for a talented team member who is interested in making a difference in a small, growing firm, who brings an eager attitude and creativity to the team, and is invested in furthering the design profession in a young, growing, collaborative office. Self-awareness and humility are key traits we look for, with the hunger and desire to have an impact in our firm and for our clients.

Applicants will be evaluated based on their portfolio, relevant experience, references, and interview. Please provide a link to your portfolio or website within your resume or application. 


LIQUE Design Studio is the architecture division of LIQUE Group, a young A/E/C firm based in downtown San Antonio. The name, LIQUE (pronounced “leek”) pays homage to the nickname for one of the founding partners’ mentors. 

The Design Studio is a nimble group of 4 architects and designers, dedicated to producing high-quality design for a wide range of clients across both residential and commercial markets by offering a robust scope of comprehensive architecture services. We are experts in the design and construction process and our clients rely on us to lead them from site selection through final building commissioning.

We are a horizontally organized studio: we don’t believe in middle-management or pigeon-holing our employees into project phases or typologies. Instead, we expect all members of a project team from principal to intern to contribute from initial concepts through construction administration. Our core values center around creativity and passion, and our process emphasizes engaging with individuals to capture their vision.
