DeForest Architects is inventive, thoughtful, collaborative, and in need of an Architect + Designer in our Seattle studio.

Clients have described our process as “inclusive, hands-on, fun, and addictive.” That hits the mark because it reflects our desire to be innovative not only in what we design, but in how we listen, learn, and work together.

We need strong project management, design, and production skills gained from 3 to 7 years’ experience working on challenging projects in all phases, including complex custom residential projects. In addition to supporting the project architect, you will be an engaged member of the design team.

Technical knowledge and thoughtful detailing are a must and communication and organizational skills should be second nature. Familiarity with ArchiCAD is a plus and a good sense of humor is a prerequisite.

We seek

idea people who are also capable of contributing to projects from start to finish,

collaborators who share their initiative, inspiration, and enthusiasm,

professionals who combine wide expertise with a spirit of discovery, and

talented designers who are devoted to serving clients.

As time goes on, there will be opportunities to develop leadership skills in design, client relations, and project management if you and the firm grow as we expect.

We have a sunny courtyard studio in Ballard in Seattle, WA and another in Lake Tahoe, CA, as well as a slate of exciting projects on the boards.

DeForest Architects brings people, buildings, and ideas together.
