Danish Speaking Architects

We wish to appoint talented architects with fluent Danish, initially in our London studio. Successful candidates will work on a range of projects including an urban planning commission for Levantkaj in Copenhagen.

The work on Levantkaj will be varied and will involve the development of a detailed masterplan as a single or a series of ‘Lokalplans’, the investigation of a wide range of building typologies to demonstrate the viability of the proposed blocks and the design of public spaces for the next stage of the development of Copenhagen’s North Harbour.

In the first instance we seek one or two architects who are fluent in Danish to work closely with the project partner, and to participate in the design team meetings and meetings with the client, By & Havn. Initially successful candidates will be employed in our London studio, however it will be necessary for project staff to spend some time in Copenhagen, and this may develop into a more permanent arrangement.

These roles provide an opportunity to become involved in a significant project for the next stage of development of Copenhagen’s North Harbour.
