Indigo Architecture is a fresh, vibrant practice based in a Grade II converted stable within the picturesque setting of Darley Abbey Park. 

Established in late 2016, the practice has grown organically since inception and now employs a team of 8 Architects and Technologists. We work flexibly, believing that our work should fit our life choices and there are never any expectations of late night finishes or weekend working to meet deadlines. 

Our project portfolio continues to evolve and we find ourselves working across multiple industry sectors including residential, education, industrial and commercial projects. 

Our growth through 2020 is continuing into 2021 and we are excited to be able to bring a further Architect into the practice. 

Initial work will generally comprise residential projects including individual luxury new homes, small scale residential developments and extension/refurbishment projects with wider sector opportunities provided as the role develops.

The role will suit an energetic and ambitious Architect looking to be a part of building and shaping a practice that expects to double in size in the next 24months. You will be responsible for delivery of your own projects and for dealing directly with clients, planning officers and other design consultants. 

Demonstrable experience and capability to provide Stage 1-3 design work on residential projects is essential.
