CORE is always looking for highly qualified individuals to join our team. Please send your resume and work samples to

CORE, an award-winning architecture and design firm in Georgetown in Washington, DC is seeking a junior-level Project Architect or Designer with experience in restaurant and hospitality projects.

To be considered, the candidate should have about 3 years experience and be capable of working directly with a principal and project manager to participate in the design and documentation of complex, detail-oriented projects. We are seeking someone who is artistically-minded and can work in a variety of styles. You should be self-motivated and have strong presentation skills, both graphically and verbally. It is important that you are accustomed to the fast-paced and complex nature of hospitality projects. You should understand MEP and other practical considerations relative to restaurants, and be comfortable designing the full package: from interior to storefront and enjoy adapting buildings to this type of use. Code and jurisdictional requirement understanding is key. Space planning skills should include general layout and flow from front of house to back of house, as well as dynamic arrangement of seating and bar areas.

CORE’s work is carried out in a collaborative environment; our multi-talented teams are involved throughout design and construction working with owners, consultants, and contractors to produce experiential spaces. Qualified candidates should possess strong organizational, multi-tasking and creative skills with technical and analytical abilities, good product and materials knowledge; and should thrive on challenging, varied work in a busy studio environment.

Design and documentation is done in Archicad and we are a MAC based office. Experience working in BIM software is a plus; Archicad training will be provided to successful applicants.

If you fit the bill, we hope you’ll contact us! Please submit your resume and portfolio samples as PDF or jpeg files (less than 5 mgb) to
