Here at Ultra-Unit Architectural Studio we embrace “crafted design” as a methodology and consider ourselves catalyst of change in the dynamic Long Beach area. Crafted because we see good design as the product of an effort that shapes a problem, negotiates between actors and works through iteration to find a great solution. Architecture the way we practice it also includes actively participating in construction as a way of maintaining authorship and bridging the gap between concept and building.
We value making physical models, sketching, 3d modeling, visualization as we see all of these mediums as significant contributors to design within the office. We very intentionally operate as a collaborative studio which is made possible by our small size and integrated design / construction processes in which staff is able to work on a great variety of projects and have hands on experience from client interactions through in-field construction coordination. Project types are various and localized including multifamily, retail, restaurants, and adaptive reuse commercial types.
As principal I am looking for team members who find good design to be stimulating, The kind of people that find it hard to sleep when a great idea is kicking around in their heads.
We would like to hire one or more persons who share our vision and who have 1 – 3 years experience in an architectural firm, technical expertise in multi-family and type III, V construction and have at least 1 year of professional Revit use. Portfolio review is part of this application process.
We are a small firm with big ideas and for the right candidate we offer authorship as an integral part of this rapidly growing firm. Relocation for the right candidate within the continental US is a possibility.
Incentives include 4 weeks annually paid vacation and subsidized medical insurance
