at Generator Studio

Generator Studio is hiring an interior designer to join its team in Kansas City, USA.


The interior designer works closely with the director of interior design and broader team to develop the design of the interior spaces and the spaces in-between. This person collaborates with architects and other professional consultant team members to plan, design, coordinate and present ideas relating to a variety of residential, workplace, hospitality, sports and urban mixed-use design projects. This is a hands-on role that involves research and expression of design ideas through sketching, diagrams, digital modelling and rendering in client facing communication. Interior designers actively participate in design discourse and critiques with the interior design team, project team and larger firm during weekly design reviews.
