OPEN POSITION: Design/BIM Architectural Intern
ABOUT EVIA STUDIO
EVIA Studio is a new, research-based architecture and consulting firm in Silicon Valley specializing in contextual, story-rich, future-minded custom residences, multifamily, and mixed-use developments. We are dedicated to designing beautiful, cutting-edge, and resilient housing for the West Coast, with local offices in the Bay Area, California and Bellingham, Washington.
In true Silicon Valley spirit, we practice less like your typical architecture firm and more like a burgeoning start-up with big goals and a rebel spirit. Our team operates in a completely virtual practice, and we're looking for a unique and ambitious Designer/BIM Intern to join us as a part-time independent contractor with potential to continue work, grow, and evolve with us long-term. We don’t have set working hours, so this is a good opportunity for a student who needs to work around class time.
You will work collaboratively with all members of the team on all areas of practice (great for AXP hours!) including: BIM design/modeling, presentations/rendering, detailing, drawings, marketing, brand development, social media, business development, and more! Plus, you will be working on our most exciting project – a completely off-grid, fully automated, resilient residential community in an extreme environment on Hawaii with a focus on ancient forest restoration.
Critical skills required: Strong/advanced Revit proficiency, beautiful renderings (programs used are flexible), communication via Slack, BIM360, GSuite, etc. (as a virtual practice this is important!), and presentation skills (Adobe suite).
WHAT YOU GET:
+/- 16 hours/week, flexible hours and length of contract
Contract remote position - work on your own time from anywhere!
Competitive pay is based on experience
Design of ultra high-end, luxury homes
Cutting-edge, sustainable project experience
Mentorship with an AXP supervisor
Exposure to all areas of practice and business development
Work with fun, energetic, passionate, casually obsessive professionals - we're dreamers, risk takers, and constantly pushing to do and create better architecture and become leaders in the industry
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
You must be:
A creative problem solver
You should have:
Arch / M.Arch in-progress or completed
1+ years design experience (architecture, graphic, and/or other)
Ability to model/create complex families in Revit and create realistic renderings
Impeccable presentation skills - clean, balanced, compelling
Understanding of construction documents and interest in detailing
Interest in licensure (AXP experience offered)
Interest in new methods of digital design representation and storytelling (VR, AR, etc.)
Preference for modern, ultra-sustainable (passive + building science), site-specific design
We work in Revit, so a full (not LT) Revit license and skillset is required (the collaborative add-on BIM360 can be paid for by EVIA Studio if necessary)
Visualization software of preference (ie SketchUp, 3ds Max, Lumion, Enscape, Unity, Unreal, Cinema4d)
G-Suite, Dropbox, file sharing/management for organization and Slack for communication
Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, etc.)
UX, Brand, Web, and Video design a plus!
