Now Hiring Design Architects with 1-3 Years Experience

C/D/O has a huge hole in our hearts that we need to fill. Our beloved Design Architect, Reagan is headed to Grad School. While we could never replace her, we do have an amazing opportunity for someone with 1 to 3 years of architectural experience and a BArch or BA in Architecture.

Central Design Office (C/D/O) is the design, architecture, and urban design entity of the integrated companies of UIC. UIC was founded by architects with a belief that design should be at the forefront of what our company is and seeks to be. While we operate at a variety of scales and project types, maintaining a consistent quality in design is central to our brand and our continued success. In fact, it’s even the first of our core values as a company: Great Design Matters.

At C/D/O, our vision is one of disciplined weirdness: As a design-centered company, it is critical to embrace the uniqueness that comes from unbridled creativity and boundless curiosity. At the same time, the discipline to be deliberately weird when called for, and practically-minded along the way to getting there energizes our process with a synergy around our core values and mission.

As a Design Architect, you will collaborate with Project Architects and the Design Principal to effectively complete design proposals, design presentations, drawing issues and will be involved in the day to day architectural functions in all phases of project delivery. Accountability for organizing your time to meet the deadlines and finishing tasks set by supervisor is paramount.

If you are hard-working, passionate about community, architecture, construction, St Louis, modern design and office dogs…. We want to talk to you.  Please send your resume and portfolio to
