Architects Local is a recently formed firm with a primary focus in real estate development. Though a generalist architectural firm, our specialties lie primarily in the multi-family, commercial, and hospitality markets within San Diego County and surrounding areas. Through our partnerships with other local firms, we have been involved in several projects that were subsequently nominated for Orchids by the San Diego Architectural Foundation. Please refer to our website [architectslocal.com] for additional information.
Architects Local is now seeking to add a Project Architect to our current staff of 14. Candidates must be highly motivated and possess the ability to assist a principal in leading a project team from Schematic Design through Construction.

Consequently, growth potential will be limited only by his/her own limitations.

Architects Local began with three budding architects who had obtained a Master of Science in Architecture in Real Estate Development (MSArch RED) and wanted to create a practice that spanned the two realms. As a result, we are uniquely attuned to building development processes.
Architects Local fosters a culture of passionate people who love the products we create. We want to engage in creating... the best city we can, one building project at a time. We strive to collaborate with clients who support a similar goal, and recognize that quality design comes in many ways, not all of them more expensively, and recognizes the same result occurs: Good design adds value to the bottom line.
Architects Local offers architectural services in several markets with an emphasis on multi-family and restaurants/bars, but we also specialize in working with land owners and potential buyers to evaluate a property for its development potential. This includes producing feasibility studies, zoning analyses, and preliminary massing and parking studies. While our core business function is directed toward client oriented services, an integral aspect of our business is focused on the development of urban infill projects as Architect/Developer partnering with other parties to realize development opportunities. As a stakeholder in developments of our own, we bring that experience to our work making us smarter Architects for our clients being ever mindful of the developer’s interests.
