Vessel Studio is a boutique architecture and design studio with a refined modernist sensibility striving to elevate both practice and product through rigorous research, exploration, and execution. They design exquisite living spaces primarily but dabble in a broadening array of design typologies and believe strongly that Architecture is merely one branch of the design tree.
Vessel Studio is growing and is looking for the following qualities in a colleague:
An inquisitive collaborator with a penchant for craft
A critical thinker with an even more critical eye for detail
A maker and a doer
An independent self-starter
An outspoken voice both searching for and serving knowledge
A technical wizard who dreams in vectors and splines
Someone who wants to lead rather than follow
Self-directed, with a high level of initiative.
The candidate is expected to have 2-7 years of post-graduate professional experience. Since they are a small firm, you can expect to have a broad array of responsibilities and exposure to all aspects of a project's life cycle, from concept through completion. The position will begin with a 3-6 month evaluation period with the possibility for full-time employment beyond. It is structured as a remote, part-time, flexible, hourly position (20-30 hours/week to start). Competitive hourly rate offered based on experience and raw talent.
Vessel Studio is currently working remotely and does not have plans to re-enter the "studio" quite yet. They provide a flexible, deadline-based schedule so you can work your preferred hours with scheduled daily check-ins and zoom meetings, etc.
The key ingredients in your arsenal may include:
Professional degree in Architecture as a minimum
Extensive knowledge of architectural detailing and construction standards.
The ability to produce DD/CD details and documents with minimal supervision.
VECTORWORKS experience is a major plus, but not required.
Sketchup/Rhino experience is a plus.
Experience working with Malibu and Los Angeles building depts.
