Architect (Part-Time/Full-Time)

We are a progressive, digital-first commercial architecture and interior design firm with a focus on building and revitalizing communities through design. We focus exclusively on Infill Development and Adaptive Reuse projects and have a passion for historic revitalization, community consciousness and involvement, and responsible design. We are core values-driven: Pioneer Spirit, Trusted Guides, Responsive, Invested, and have Serious Fun.

Method was started with the idea to reimagine what it is architecture firms actually do. We provide exceptional service by being enthusiastic champions of our client's vision. By using new technologies and tools, we've explored various ways to involve our team and clients in a more hands-on way throughout the project process. In practice, we operate more as a collaborative goals-based team than a traditional top-down studio.

Method Group believes in creating a high quality of living for its staff and does so through transparent, equitable, and collaborative business practices. In recent years we’ve learned how important flexibility, autonomy, and compassion are to our wellbeing and ability to perform at our best. We intentionally designed our business to put those needs first. We know our approach is unique and while we love it, we know it’s not for everyone. Still, we hope that it helps move the industry towards a more balanced, healthy, supportive culture overall.
