Architect/Designer I-III (Residential) Position Open

3North is an award-winning, Unified Design firm with studios in Richmond, VA and San Francisco, CA. We believe great design only happens when creative fields collaborate without walls or silos.

That’s why we’ve spent the past 20 years building a firm of architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and graphic designers who work across disciplines toward an integrated project vision. In 2019, we were awarded AIA Virginia’s highest honor, the T. David Fitzgibbon Firm Award, recognizing a long and distinguished record of design excellence and community service.

We are currently seeking a talented and highly motivated Architect or Architectural Intern with high-caliber design experience for our Residential Studio. We offer a design-driven environment that offers exposure to exciting and diverse projects from large-scale renovations to estate development and ranging in style from traditional to contemporary. We are looking for candidates with creativity and strong design and problem-solving skills — from conceptual design through construction documentation — that will help to expand the abilities and breadth of our growing firm.

  • Plan, organize, and be responsible for your work within your project team

  • Assist more experienced designers, as well as provide direction to interns, technical drafters, and administrative staff
  • Tackle unusual design and technical challenges within all projects
  • Work collaboratively across multiple design disciplines


  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Architecture
  • Related experience in an architectural practice
  • Licensure or tracking toward licensure not required, but desirable
  • Experience with Revit, AutoCAD, Bluebeam Revu, SketchUp, Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator), and MS Office
