Intermediate Architect (New York City NY)

Joseph Vance Architects
April 13, 2019
Job Type



For 27 years  Joseph Vance Architects has been designing high end, custom residential projects – brownstone/townhouse gut renovations, lofts, rooftop additions and conversions of manufacturing buildings to residential. We are a small group of creative problem solvers with a taste for well-crafted design. We value hard work to continuously grow and evolve, pushing boundaries until a project is the best it can be.

Current projects include a ground up new 6 story townhouse in the Upper West Side (with a new basketball court beneath), a gut renovation of a townhouse in Chelsea including a totally new facade, a 6,000sf triplex in a new West Village development and others.

We are currently seeking a mid level Project Architect/Manager to join our ranks.

As a member of our team you will manage your own projects under the direction of the principal, and with the support of the office as needed to help meet deadlines. The format of our firm is such that everyone is expected to run his/her own jobs - generating designs, presentations and drawings, researching codes, managing schedules, and coordinating with clients, contractors, expeditors, city agencies, vendors, consultants, etc. throughout the entire process of the project from initial client meetings to punch-list closeout. The nature of our business requires immense organization, efficiency, and commitment, but we also maintain a very stable work/life balance.

Ideally you have experience in residential architecture in NYC, some knowledge of NYC DOB and LPC, have worked with 3D modeling/BIM software (Archicad a plus) and the adobe creative suite. We also expect you to have a great design sensibility and critical thinking skills, along with 4-8 years of professional experience.

If this sounds like you, then please submit a pdf of your cover letter, resume, and work sample. This is a full time salaried position with medical coverage (no part-time or freelance work). We look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your interest in our firm!
