    We are committed to design excellence and high quality service. We believe in a good work environment that values and encourages personal and professional development, and would like individuals who can help cultivate a strong office design culture. Our staff are all encouraged to be active in the community.
    We enjoy and seek a unique range of projects for both public and private clients that include education, public buildings, supportive housing, interiors, cultural facilities, hospitality, mixed-use and health care projects. We typically avoid developer clients, but we are now undertaking our own third small scale development project, and will continue to do more.

    We are seeking a talented Intermediate or Senior Intern or Licensed Architect with:

    • minimum of 5 and ideally 10 years of relevant experience
    • someone well rounded with strong design skills
    • strong technical knowledge to ensure quality in our documents

    • broad skills and experience in all phases of project delivery
    • proficient in Autocad
    • have a thorough knowledge of the Ontario Building Code

    • leadership skills are essential for effective teamwork, and in order to interact with clients, consultants, authorities, and contractors.
    • dynamic, highly skilled, organized, motivated, independent self-starter, ideally with a well rounded skill set in all areas of practice

    Any additional unique skills that would enhance our ability to attract and service our clients while achieving design excellence would be a bonus.

    Our office is intentionally all Architects to ensure the broadest skill set addressing any issue. 
    We’ve redeveloped a historic downtown loft warehouse for our home which illustrates our values and our creative abilities, is a high profile presence in downtown renewal and is a benchmark for workplace quality.

    Your responsibilities will be limited only by your capabilities, initiative and level of commitment. There is potential to assume a leadership or future partnership role for the right person. 
    We work hard, but try to have fun, and all go out together for ‘mandatory’ Thursday lunches provided by the firm.
    We offer flexible work hours, we work Summer Hours all year (4-1/2 day weeks), and work minimal overtime. We pay for every hour worked; we don’t allow free work or unpaid overtime. We think we pay well, ideally at the top end of the SDA Salary Survey, and everyone gets an annual self-directed healthcare benefit.
    We shut down over the Christmas holidays as a paid bonus to all.

    Every two years the firm provides an office-wide Field Trip to experience quality architecture and places. Past trips were to Miami, Philadelphia, Havana, Chicago, Pittsburgh/Fallingwater and Buffalo.

    We offer the many advantages of working in a medium size office such as lots of variety of building types and sizes. Hamilton provides a vibrant culture, music and food scene as well as affordable housing, and we are in the middle of it and plugged into it.
