Project Orange are Hiring

Project Orange are seeking a part two or recently qualified architect to join our small team in Suffolk to work on a diverse range of housing projects targeting sustainability. We have a new studio in Lavenham, Suffolk and have taken desk space in central London for our team there. The past year has shown we are able to thrive with flexible working practices.

About Project Orange

Project Orange is a resourceful and agile Architecture and Design Studio set up and owned by Christopher Ash and James Soane who also are partners in life. We see ourselves as a stepping-stone practice and are proud that over the past 20 years more than 50% of our employees have gone on to set up on their own. We believe in working collaboratively to generate purposeful and sustainable projects. Our ethos means that we do our own administration and organising which means you get a full picture of the practice. In the face of the ecological crisis we are actively taking an ethical position that values resilience, innovation and community. Christopher leads much of the housing work and technical resolution, while James has directed most of the interior portfolio as well as specialist projects. He was also a founder staff member of the London School of Architecture where he was the Director of Critical Practice. 

Architect Role

Most of our work is based in East Anglia with a few key projects in London. Projects range from groups of 45 new homes to the individual house, as well as a number of renovations and extensions.

We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about housing and the environment. You will have great design skills and be able to work across a number of platforms including Vectorworks and Sketchup, eager to learn and happy to take direction. The position is for someone who will be able to work in our Lavenham Suffolk studio at least 3 days a week.

Application Process
