VACANT-POSITION-JOURNAL-POST

We are hiring!

The role:

Let’s cut to the chase, all job descriptions these days require candidates to have a strong passion for design, be meticulous, self-motivated, able to work in a team, able to work by themselves, be great in adobe, excel at myriad 3d programs and also have excellent construction knowledge and documentation experience…easy.

If you can tick all of the boxes above, fantastic, but we’d also like to hear from you if your personal venn diagram of skills and experience encompasses most of the above, and some stuff we haven’t listed. We believe in being able to teach you skills you may not have, and hope you can do the same
for us.

The most important quality you will have is an ability to constructively embrace and engage with our core values – knowledge, radicalism and play. These three concepts guide our work, and in practice this results in our team constantly expanding their skills as we seek to design a better future.

We’re ideally looking for someone who is recently registered or looking to become so in the next 1-2 yrs. You will be working on projects that vary greatly in scale and complexity, from portable structures up to masterplanning urban and rural communities, and you must be comfortable working within various teams and across project types simultaneously. Rather than list the projects we have on
the drawing board, we’d prefer to meet good candidates and match them to the kind of work we’re doing, and that we are interested in doing.

The office:

Decibel Architecture is housed in our newly furbished studio in the world’s greenest office building, Pixel, in Carlton. Pixel is a ‘Future Office’ – a prototype of the commercial buildings that will emerge when a carbon constrained environment demands a greater focus on energy efficiency. We’re here because we are walking the talk, and this resonates with our diverse client base.

Venn skill sets:

Our New Office the Pixel Building in Carlton

Pixel is a ‘Future Office’ – a prototype of the commercial buildings that will emerge when a carbon constrained environment demands a greater focus on energy efficiency. As a prototype, it enables an analysis of the ongoing implications of new technologies in the commercial
building sector.

The most publicly visible element is Pixel’s colourful Façade. A simple but intricate assembly of zero waste, recycled colour panels providing maximised daylight, shade, views
and glare control.
