Careers by Studios Architecture

We make space for people
to grow.

To rethink and reimagine for our clients, we had to first do the same for ourselves. Back at our founding, we chose our name as a testament to an inclusive vision, rather than a monument to the genius of a few. Our way is to rally talent and knowledge around the challenges and potential of our clients. Our diversity and purposefully non-hierarchical structure allow us to take on all kinds of projects, work with clients as partners, and bring uncommon rigor and insight to everything we do.

Because we believe that community matters, we support our people, their passions, and the issues they care about. We offer mentorship and ongoing educational and training opportunities, as well as fun, creative outings and events that allow us to connect with each other outside of project teams. We enjoy taking part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Real Estate Games, planting community gardens with the New York Restoration Project, and transforming parking spaces into mini-parks for Park(ing) Day, among other community activities. As an early signatory to the AIA’s 2030 Commitment, we continuously explore design strategies, building systems, materials, and processes that improve the health of the individual, the communities, and the planet.

We’re looking for risk-taking, team-working, self-starting, problem-solving, boundary-pushing, non-conforming, intellectually engaging contributors from all backgrounds, with wide skill sets and even wider curiosity. Join us in applying creative thinking without limits, to realize solutions beyond expectation.

United by Purpose

STUDIOS' Washington DC Office

Out of a historic, renovated school building in the heart of DC’s Central Business District, we help clients transform their physical environments in ways that shape the future. Our experience includes many landmark buildings, with project goals ranging from furthering education to providing quality housing to rethinking tomorrow’s office building. While we’ve earned a reputation as a leader in workplace strategy, our success in base building, innovative jewel-box projects and world-class offices and headquarters speaks to the versatility and ingenuity of our design thinking.

Our ability to take on a wide range of challenges is made possible by our commitment to diversity, and the valuable insights and unique points of view brought to the table. While we come from different backgrounds, we share a spirit of civic and social responsibility. We are a DC local Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) committed to ongoing collaboration with local, small, minority- and women-owned businesses. Our pro-bono work for non-profit organizations includes the design of a new building in Washington DC's Navy Yard neighborhood for hands-on education and training using urban, natural, and maritime resources as "living classrooms," designing a dining room facility for the poor and homeless community, and various mentorship programs that support students in envisioning opportunities beyond their difficult circumstances. Our employees give time, heart and energy to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and DC Public Schools “Architecture in Schools” program, among others. Being engaged in building stronger communities is important to us, as designers and architects entrusted with creating enduring impact.

San Francisco

Born from Innovation

San Francisco is where STUDIOS’ story began. Since 1985, we’ve worked with and grown alongside Silicon Valley innovators and Bay Area based disruptors. Our impact is now seen and felt far beyond the world of tech. We’ve designed commercial interiors and headquarters for clients in media, entertainment, law, finance, and other industries. Our projects also include new buildings and renovations for education and civic clients, major urban developments, and performing arts centers in China. Our approach, solutions, and identity are indelibly shaped by the Bay Area culture of innovation. Throughout our work, we push for more sustainable building materials and methodologies, and integrate technology to improve design, building performance, and the experience of people—ourselves, our partners, and all those who live and work in the spaces we create.

We designed our current office, north of Market Street in the Financial District, from scratch. The space is a reflection of our fearlessly collaborative work style and open mindset. Every available work surface serves as a place to freely share ideas and display designs in progress. Surrounded by long stretches of windows providing panoramic views of the Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower, and the Bay, we are reminded to look up and out into the world for inspiration. Our new studio is LEED Gold, one of only 25 projects under LEED v4 in California at the time of certification!

Our team is creative and passionate, and always learning from one another. We also love to come together and get to know one another outside of project work through a variety of activities, such as Fireside Chats hosted by our Practice Group, design discourse at STUDIOSalon, drawing sessions, employee art shows, themed happy hours, summer picnics, our softball team The Studi-o's, and more.

New York

Mission-Driven by Design

You can find us in the very SoHo loft where we first opened our office doors in 1995. Since then, we’ve expanded our team—from three to 70 people—and our impact. Servicing a multitude of leading organizations looking for high-level design solutions to advance their mission and strategic vision, our projects run the gamut from Nike’s award-winning headquarters to the long-term repositioning of Chelsea Market to the vast regeneration of Kearny Point. Applying a wide range of perspectives to every challenge, our teams thrive on complex projects that require fresh thinking and openness to new approaches.

As true New Yorkers, we play as hard as we work, and we care about our communities. We’re always eager to compete in a softball or bowling league, seek out inspiration in design showrooms and on project tours, or enjoy a pantry happy hour. Volunteering our time and skills comes naturally to us, too. We’ve planted gardens with New York Restoration Project and invited students in to learn about the profession we love. In the office and out in our city, we’re a team. Together we look to the future and play our part in making it brighter.

Los Angeles

Inspiring Creative Transformation

Now located in the historic commercial district of Westwood Village, just a few blocks from our neighbors at UCLA, our office first opened in 1999 to more closely partner with STUDIOS’ notable clients in media and entertainment. From the start, we had the opportunity to take on large-scale projects with some of the biggest names in the business: Disney, Warner Bros., and Cartoon Network. Since then, we’ve grown our presence and impact across Southern California and beyond, working with university clients, tech companies, law firms, and retailers on interiors, innovation, and new building designs.

Whether we’re turning a world-renowned culinary destination into a sustainability superstar, or helping a studio for animators embrace its higher purpose as a hub of creative inspiration for artists, we believe in the power of design to transform. Our expansive approach pulls insight and inspiration from across boundaries of expertise, and is tailored to each client’s vision, values, and needs. To our work in the office, and our volunteer efforts out in the community, we bring an openness to meeting new people, exploring new frontiers, and discovering new possibilities.

Building on Trusted Partnerships

Founded in 2012, we’re here to support a core tenet of STUDIOS—hands-on collaboration with clients and project teams.

Bringing the openness, optimism, and holistic approach we’re known for, our team is able to pursue and realize the full potential of the corporate and institutional campuses and residential complexes we design there.

We work hand in hand with our trusted local partners, whose nuanced perspective and in-depth regional knowledge is key to our ability to deliver solutions that fulfill needs, transcend the status quo, and move organizations and people forward.
