RFRM Collective //

RFRM Collective (RC) is an architecture and design studio keen on challenging and defying the status quo. RC believes in a modus operandi that resist hierarchies and allows for inclusivity and equity, not only with our clients but also with our collaborators, team members and consultants.

Subverting the prototypical architectural-master-figure through a collective group of individuals, ideas, and objects that coalesce together for a common goal is at the core of RC. We are open to explore what it means to practice architecture today understanding the intricacies of authorship, collaboration, and leadership.

We are in the Los Angeles Clean Teach Incubator (LACI). At LACI we form part of a community striving to make a conscious impact. We have collaborated with green-building start-ups and community groups that push for the wellbeing of the community and sustainable practices.

The Position //

We are seeking entry level professionals interested in all the forces that shape architecture and its practice. You will be critiquing on-going projects and offering insight, drawing details, compiling drawing sets, obtaining material samples from vendors as well as communicating directly with clients.

We believe there are multiple avenues to practice architecture. We offer a work environment that seeks to encourage professional agency. This entry level position is a position that enables you to grow, learn and further develop interest you deem important to your own professional practice. This requires the ideal candidate to be highly motivated, detail-oriented, and with excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

Working Hours and Schedule //

Our space is more than an office, it is a place for conversation, a forum to express and test ideas, and a conduit to create personal/professional relationships. We do not have a set schedule or a set time to begin/end work as long as the minimum time is met (i.e. 40-hour work week). We expect you to attend meetings as required and to preform self-accountability encouraging a well-balanced work-life schedule.

Requirements Qualifications //

  • Architecture degree, B.A., B.Arch. or M.Arch.
  • We are looking for someone with design/graphic sensibility
  • Experience with Revit, Autocad, Adobe Suites and Rhino is ideal
  • Experience with construction document production is a plus
  • Current students or recent graduates are welcome to apply
  • Authorization to work in the U.S. is a must
  • Fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with the ability to work in an office while adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols

RFRM Collective is committed to creating inclusive environment. All applicants for employment are recruited, hired and assigned based on merit without discrimination because of age, race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other non-merit factor.
