  • Job type: Permanent
  • Location: Colombo

About this role

With a legacy in world-class architecture this practice is published and respected as an innovator in architecture, design and technology globally. They have an international footprint with offices in Sri Lanka, Asia and London. This role will be based in Sri Lanka working alongside an international team of architects.

This is a leadership role that would suit an architect who is design-focused and wants to see work through to completion in the traditional way.  Although the office is established, this role is for the studio to commit and develop best design practice and nurture talent internally whilst managing a range of project scales, from concept through to completion.

Projects will vary from resort-based to urban regeneration (large scale), hotels, community projects and residential in Sri Lanka and wider Asia.

The practice puts back into the community, working with local materials and has a varied typology of project and scale. This would be an opportunity to discover and commit to a different lifestyle and way of living but also a different way of designing, building and experiencing architecture.

Those with experience of working abroad would be best suited.  The practice offers a flexible package which may include schooling, accommodation and travel.
