S2 Design is a small, nimble design studio dedicated to the pursuit of contemporary architecture. The majority of our work includes high-end custom residential, new multi-family, mixed-use, commercial fit-out, and historic/ adaptive re-use projects. We encourage strong community engagement, an open exchange of ideas, and value a supportive, yet challenging work environment. Our studio is located within a South Philly workshop/ garage.

Your responsibilities will be both diverse and broad in nature, with opportunities to strengthen your problem solving and design skills. You will be involved in all aspects of project development– from surveying, design, and production to coordinating with consultants, managing smaller projects, and tracking schedules.
