Experienced Part II Architectural Assistant/recently Qualified Part III Architect
TT Architects is a new, busy, design-driven practice specialising in high quality boutique hotels. Whilst developing projects for new hotels during all stages, from feasibility thorough construction and hand over, there is also a strong focus on sustainable design. Our direct involvement with Z Hotels, a very successful organisation offering compact luxury guest accommodation by converting underused but beautiful buildings in central locations into buzzing hubs for visitors, responds to our drive to find a sensitive reconciliation of old and new whilst focusing on the guest experience.
We aim to raise design standards on every project by developing environmental strategies from very early stages of the design process. A line of research is also being developed for new materials and techniques on new buildings, as well as post occupation monitoring of the already build projects.
We are seeking a passionate Project Architect with a keen interest in contemporary hotel design and a minimum of relevant 2 years UK experience, who will be working hand in hand with the practice principal and project manager on all projects.
