Project Architect – Retail/Mixed-Use Project

Project Architect – Retail/Mixed-Use Project

The culture is horizontal, not ivory tower and collaborative; where new ideas and ambition are encouraged and rewarded, and there is a fast track for promotions into the executive leadership of the firm. There aren’t layers of politics or hiearchy. There’s an entrepreneurial & collaborative culture, where the leaders take their work seriously but not themselves. The studio operates as a flat structure, so they manage their time diligently & with transparency. They strongly believe in obtaining team member “buy in” before committing to a project. As a result of this approach, overtime is rare and limited to unforeseen, critical requests.
