Architectural Designer

Projects | Hybrid in London, United Kingdom | Full Time

Job Description

We are looking for UK-based Architectural designers to join the Studio. 

Heatherwick Studio is a team of over 200 problem solvers dedicated to making the physical world around us better for everyone. Based out of our combined workshop and design studio in Central London, we create buildings, spaces, masterplans, objects and infrastructure. Focusing on large-scale projects in cities all over the world, we prioritise those with the greatest positive social impact.  

Working as practical inventors with no signature style, our motivation is to design soulful and interesting places that embrace and celebrate the complexities of the real world. The approach driving everything is to lead from a human experience rather than any fixed design dogma.  

The studio’s completed projects include a number of internationally celebrated buildings, including the award-winning Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, Learning Hub at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, Coal Drops Yard in London, the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010, and Little Island in New York.  

We expect all studio members to work together with honesty and integrity, and to have genuine care for each other. The studio is a creative community and it’s important to use that everyone feels they belong.  We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and all applicants will be considered without regard to ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, national origin, neurodiversity status or disability status.  We encourage all people from historically underrepresented backgrounds to apply. If you want any help with your application, please let us know.
