New York, NY
Studioteka is a small dynamic firm with a variety of commercial and residential projects located in a beautiful loft space in the heart of DUMBO. We vary in number from 6 to more with the addition of a couple of freelancers who occasionally help us out. In contrast to a stuffy corporate office, you’ll find our space relaxed, friendly and informal, and fun to work in!
**UPDATE** We have a number of exciting new projects combining architecture, interiors and landscape urbanism. Fluency in Spanish is a big plus as is interest in innovative, sustainable and resilient design. We received many inquiries to our previous posting, so if you did not hear back from us and are still available and interested, please feel free to submit your materials to us again.
What we're looking for: dedicated, motivated individuals looking for a hands-on work experience with as much responsibility as you can handle. Maturity and a high level of motivation are important. Some exciting new projects are about to start, so we are looking for interns as well as people with 3-5 years of office work experience. For the internship, previous practical experience in building or making things (whether experience in architecture, interiors, furniture or product design) is a plus, as are skills in 3D visualization. The intern would participate in research and preliminary design for the kick off one of the new projects, as well as participating in ongoing projects in the office.
We are also looking for people with a fair degree of practical experience on a job site, great design and interpersonal skills, as well as a high degree of comfort in putting together drawing sets and client presentations. A strong interest in applying and furthering Studioteka's practical research on innovative design for climate change is key. All candidates should have excellent communication skills and be well organized and self-motivated team players. An adventurous spirit and a love of design are a must, as is the ability to work in an informal design studio atmosphere. Compensation will depend upon the skill and experience level of applicants and the mix of projects in the office.
Start date: Immediately/summer. Prefer three to six month term, minimum, for intern. Candidates should have a working knowledge of Autocad, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and In-Design. Preference will be given to candidates who also have proficiency in 3D Studio Max, Rhino with Vray or other 3D programs. An interest and a passion for innovative sustainable design that intelligently blends research and practicality is key.
