Junior Project Architect or Designer

CORE is seeking a Junior Project Architect or Designer with an interest in a broad range of project types aligned with our portfolio. Join our team of explorers and doers, who specialize in creating experiences by guiding our clients through a thoughtful and intentional design process. You should have an understanding of the project process, with excellent presentation and relationship building skills, and the ability to understand and interpret client needs and requirements.

To be considered, you should have 3 years experience and be capable of working collaboratively with a Principal on small projects or with a team on large projects. You will be expected to both design and document complex and 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. Basic MEP, Structural, code and jurisdictional requirement understanding is a plus. Space planning skills should be well-developed.

CORE’s work is carried out in a co-creative environment. Our multi-talented team is involved throughout design and construction working with owners, consultants, and contractors to produce spaces that shape experiences. 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 are 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.
