About the Firm

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.

Job Description

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.

Job Responsibilities

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.
