Morris + Company is seeking experienced project architects to join its team in Copenhagen for an immediate start.
Morris + Company is looking for experienced project architects to work on two exciting large-scale international projects. Our project pipeline is one with an emphasis on collaboration and open dialogue. We are seeking dynamic and team-focused candidates from a broad and diverse background with evidence of delivery of the highest standards of work.

Making architecture is an adventure better done in company. Our studio in Copenhagen applies the same open, communicative and collaborative team spirit of our London office.
Morris + Company is a company of architects. We are listeners, makers, curators, narrators, experimenters and innovators. We are bold activists and obsessive fabricators. And we are connected by our love of making buildings. Our work is the product of craft and humanity. The skill of making buildings may be specialist but human experience is universal, and it is from that experience that our architecture grows. People love, live, work, are born and die in our buildings; we bring them into being and leave them to become themselves. Our buildings are the result of rich and constructive discourse with our clients. Our methodology is inquisitive, explorative and powerful, and gives us new perspectives on a brief. We are dedicated to making architecture for mutual profit, whether that’s environmental, social, economic or cultural. Guided by a collective responsibility to the planet, we aim to bring about positive change for every person who experiences, commissions or designs our buildings. We make buildings for developers, schools, private companies, housing associations, local authorities, families, community groups and charities, and the people that use them range from white-collar workers to the hidden homeless.
