Project Architect

Larkspur, Marin County
Polsky Perlstein Architects


Polsky Perlstein Architects, one of Marin County's leading residential architectural firms, is a dynamic, fun group of people with a passionate, collaborative approach to designing great projects. 

We believe that our best work results from a synergistic blend of creative and motivated design professionals, with skillful and attentive building tradespeople, and intelligent clients that care about achieving great design.  

Our office is situated in old-town Larkspur, in the heart of Marin County, located 20 minutes from San Francisco. We’re a collaborative, studio- oriented environment that allows for participation and exposure to all aspects of the design and construction process. Visit our website at and our Houzz page (search Polsky Perlstein under “find a pro”).

Our office culture is casual. We variously celebrate birthday lunches together at local restaurants, enjoy a degree of flex time, occasionally take off up one of the local Mt. Tam trails for a mid-day hike or run (closest trail head is a three minute walk). A few of our associates even reverse commute from S.F. and find the trip to be very reasonable. Generally this is an office of happy, genuine people.


We’re interviewing for a full-time Project Architect with at least 5 years office experience and demonstrated background in custom residential design using ArchiCAD (currently v20).


A qualified candidate must have:

•      Accredited degree in architecture

•      5+ years post-degree experience, including a minimum of 3 years in the design and detailing of custom/ high end single family residential design

•      Strong creative, communication, organizational and interpersonal skills

•      Experience and familiarity with state and local building codes

•      Ability to take directions from the principals, to work and think independently, and to complete work in a timely, organized manner

•      Demonstrated experience with BIM/ virtual modeling using ArchiCAD


•      Proficiency in the Mac OS

•      Proficiency with In Design, Photoshop, Sketch-Up or other rendering programs

•      Knowledge and implementation of sustainable design practices; LEED accreditation, CGBP and/ or green design experience


For full time employees, we offer a competitive salary and a strong benefits package, including medical insurance, 401(k) with employer contribution and profit sharing, and substantial potential for professional growth. Salary is commensurate with experience.


Please email a cover letter and resume in PDF format with a few examples of your custom residential design work including an indication of your role on the projects that you submit, using the phrase “Employment- Project Architect” in the subject line. No calls or drop-ins please.
