This is a truly unique opportunity for a skilled Architect, with experience in the workspace/office design and hospitality industries to join a friendly and unique team. Let your creativity flow while designing functional yet creative co-living and co-working spaces around the world.

Founded and developed by two friends, this lifestyle brand has taken over the world. Their co-living/co-working model has changed the hospitality industry in some of the most exotic locations in America and is now taking over Europe.

The team pride themselves on their ability to redefine what it means to explore, travel and work. They have designed over 20 locations that are not only quirky and thoughtfully put together, but that also encourages guests to connect with likeminded people. They promote art and culture while looking after the environment, offer Yoga and surf lessons at their beach locations and host means parties wherever they are!
