Do you have a passion for high quality prime residential design? This is an excellent opportunity for a Part II Architectural Assistant, looking to work on contemporary residential refurbishments for both private clients and developers, to join a friendly practice of 14.

This is your chance to join a small, design-led, practice specialising in high-end residences, grade listed buildings, refurbishments, restorations and large complex developments. Established nearly 15 years ago, the practice has a portfolio of clean, contemporary and cohesive schemes in super-prime areas of London, including Knightsbridge, Belgravia, Kensington and Chelsea.

Role & Responsibilities

This is an exciting time for the right candidate to join my client. You’ll be spoilt for choice with a number of high-end and super prime residential projects currently underway in the office.

Throughout your career with the practice you will be given exposure across all stages of their projects and in-house development is supported, in order to encourage you to reach your full ability. The role would suit a motivated, self- driven and diligent individual looking to expand their skills and knowledge within a high-profile environment.
