Cox Architecture is currently taking applications to the role of Senior Designer (architecture).
As genuine and holistic thinkers, our future colleagues will have strong conceptual design skills proven through built outcomes. Rather than merely iterate or evolve, we want our work, across typologies, to make a genuine difference – in form, in operation and in a capacity to influence its users – you will share this belief and find motivation in its aspiration.
You will work closely with experienced Design Leaders with an emphasis on the inception and conception of significant projects. You will apply your considerable design skill, ambition and conscience across a range project types; ours is a practice with the very broadest of canvasses.
In addition to leading through skill you’ll also pass the ‘good person’ test by showing empathy and strength. You’ll establish effective relationships across the studio, national practice and with our clients, as well as positively contributing to the vibe within the studio.
If the above excites and scares you in equal measure then you owe it to yourself to come in a speak with the team, this is a rare opportunity for a community-minded gun designer.
You have a passion for architecture and design. It’s what gets you up in the morning and what you dream about at night. You follow the mantra of career-long learning; your sponge doesn’t get full, it just expands.
We are searching for talented designers with the following attributes:
_ Professional degree in architecture
_ 10+ year’s professional experience working within multi-disciplinary environment across a range of geographies, typologies and scales
_ Exceptional conceptual design skills
_ A natural collaborator and team-player
_ Ability to communicate quickly and convincingly through hand drawings
_ You can interpret design direction and evolve the ideas of others
_ Strong documentation and delivery experience
_ Good with people – you like working with clients and always seek to understand their motivations and viewpoints
_ A deep respect for the profession, but eager to explore new ways of working, new technologies and new methods
_ You can hold the room – excellent verbal presentation skills
_ Demonstrated working knowledge of Revit and Adobe Suite
_ Strong 3D modelling skills in either Sketchup, 3D Studio Max or Rhino
Cox Architecture is the most highly awarded design studio in Queensland.
The natural process of renewal has opened-up the studio to exciting changes and new opportunities in recent times. This is best reflected in two things; a young and dynamic cadre of young leaders coming through and in the renovation of our landmark offices on Edward Street.
Furthermore, we’re a key element of a thriving National Cox practice and we’re fortunate to have probably the broadest portfolio of work for any Australian practice – Stadiums to Towers, Public Infrastructure to Private Schools, and Innovation hubs to Dinosaur Museums. We also remain deeply connected with Academia, the Profession and the Arts.
