L+ Architects is looking for an architectural technician/technologist, with a minimum of five years’ experience to join its growing practice in London.
We are considering part-time, full -time, freelance applicants.
L+ Architects is a growing studio with five architects formed by Pablo Lambrechts in January 2019. In this time, the studio has taken on both commercial and residential projects. L+ Architects design philosophy is to bring the outside-in with modern, contemporary lines. We also work on interiors and landscaping, creating an ‘architecture of happiness’: we look closely at what design features help with human psychology and we are also passionate about employing passivhaus principals and aligning ecology and architecture as well as sustainability.
Pablo Lambrechts, the principal architect, comes from a commercial background and worked previously globally for a ‘star’ architect as the head of the London studio and among the many projects that he was involved in was the Google HQ in Kings Cross, the HQ for JC Decaux and working on super-lux villas in Mauritius. Pablo is a skilled architect with more than 20 years’ experience and he is keen to work on cutting edge projects as well as more standard designs whilst employing sustainable aspects, which he feels passionately about. The studio is located in East Sheen, next to Richmond Park, and is small, friendly and family-orientated.
We see great things to come and would love you to become a part of our success.
