We are looking for an experienced Architect to join our team and lead a new townhouse hose renovation. If you have strong 3D modeling skills, can successfully manage a design-to-build project, and live in the New York City area, we want to hear from you.

JVA is an award-winning boutique architecture firm in the heart of Chelsea.

Our current projects include a new 6 story townhouse (with a basketball court below) on the Upper West Side, a 6,000 square foot triplex in a new West Village development, and others.

We are a tight-knit group of creative problem solvers with a taste for well-crafted design and work in a collaborative team environment, pushing the boundaries until a project is the best it can be.

  • Experience with New York residential and freestanding homes and all phases of architecture
  • High level of proficiency in 3D modeling or BIM, Revit, SketchUp or Archicad and Adobe Creative Suite software
  • Track record of successfully managing 2 or more projects at a time
  • Knowledge of New York building codes, zoning and LPC
  • Strong conceptual, design and detailing skills

This is a full-time salaried position with health insurance, paid vacation, sick leave and public holidays. Please do not answer if you are looking for remote, part-time or freelance work.

Please submit a pdf document including a * personalized cover letter explaining why you would like to work at JVA and why you think would be a perfect fit for you, * your salary requirements, resume and work examples including any 3D models you have executed for [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your interest in JVA!
