Sage and Coombe Architects is a certified Woman-Owned studio based in New York City specializing in public projects and social infrastructure. We create architecture that protects and strengthens communities through inclusive and resilient design practices. 

Over two decades, our multidisciplinary 18-people team has designed libraries, parks, firehouses, athletic facilities, art centers, schools for all ages—and from time to time, we take on a beach house, townhouse, or penthouse. Our office approaches every challenge with flexibility, an open mind, and joy.

We seek an Architectural Designer with 1 to 3 years of experience committed to design innovation, building craft, and environmental stewardship. Candidates should have considerable design competency and strong 3D skills for client presentations, competitions, and in-house use for a wide range of typologies. Successful candidates will have project responsibilities from concept design through construction administration and possess an excellent spatial sense, an eye for detail, and the ability to communicate graphically. They will also have basic knowledge of BIM standards and systems (Revit).

We believe that architecture businesses have disproportionately excluded the most marginalized people in society, including people of color, women, people from working-class backgrounds, and LGBTQI people. Because we believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do, we strongly encourage applications from these communities or those who are members of other marginalized groups.

We offer a competitive salary, a comprehensive benefits package, and professional development support for Junior staff.

Responsibilities shall include but are not limited to: 

  • Ability to work individually or collaboratively with and report to Project Leader and/or Principal and meet project deadlines promptly
  • Talented in preparation of presentation material
  • Desire and ability to work in a fast-paced and rigorous environment
  • Generate hand-drawn and CAD sketches, working and presentation models throughout the design process
  • Generate detailed digital 3D models throughout the design process
  • Preparation of comprehensive drawing sets from concept design through construction documents
  • Demonstrated talent and ability to produce renderings
  • Maintain files including drawings, documents, specifications, correspondences, and all other project materials in an organized manner following firm protocols

Experience and qualifications:

  • 5-years Bachelor's or Master's degree in Architecture
  • 1 to 3 years of experience in several phases of the design process: conceptual, design development, construction documents, and construction administration
  • Applicants must be legally permitted to work in the U.S.

Applicants must have:

  • Excellent communication skills with fluency in English (spoken and written) and ability to ensure accuracy and professionalism in all communications
  • Significant contributions to a well-documented and coordinated drawing set
  • Fluency in AutoCAD and ability to produce detailed drawing sets, and basic Revit knowledge is a plus
  • Excellent Adobe Suite and Rhino modeling skills
  • Understanding of materials and construction techniques
  • A strong desire to develop as a professional architect

Sage and Coombe Architects is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer that values a diverse workplace and strongly encourages women, people of color, LGBT individuals, people with disabilities, members of ethnic minorities, and veterans to apply.
