Chan and Eayrs is currently looking for an architect to join its London practice.
Internationally acclaimed young and innovative architectural practice and design studio, Chan and Eayrs, was established in January 2013 by founders Zoe Chan and Merlin Eayrs. Our small office in London is set in an intimate setting where the chosen designer will be working directly with the two founders. Chan and Eayrs specialise in creating one off bespoke houses, with a focus on craft and contemporary vernacular design.

We are interested in the home and are driven by the desire to enrich and improve daily life through design and choreography of every day experience. Our homes are born of passion, desire to challenge the generic, desire to create outstanding, timeless design and to meet the tangible and intangible needs of a modern home.
