Studio Mackereth is a new London-based practice of architects and designers founded by award-winning architect Sally Mackereth. Our varied projects comprise both architecture and interior design, across a number of sectors including private and speculative residential, high-end retail and commercial projects of various scales for a diverse group of clients around the world.
Since the launch of the studio we have deliberately widened the parameters of what we do. Our past success in the discipline of architecture allows us to explore and enjoy the design of other things, such as our own range of furniture, temporary exhibitions and installations. However, the main focus of the studio is still rooted in architectural projects with a clear emphasis on the seamless connection between the details that shape the architecture and the inherent design and mood of the interior spaces formed within.
Positions offered are on a full-time contract, with a three month probation period.
Salary is commensurate with experience and subject to RIBA guidelines.
Interviews will begin 21 March 2018, with a view to successful candidates employment commencing following service of any contractual notice periods.
