We are hiring a full-time Intern!
Since 2011, AWH Architects has completed a wide range of architectural projects from our office in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The unifying thread between each project is our project-specific solutions and our focus on Energy, Water, Reuse, Social Equity, and Pragmatism.
AWH architects strives to design equitable and accessible spaces by integrating multiple narratives. We advocate for a concerted effort to bring diverse voices to the table. As a firm, we have helped navigate diverse clients through entitlements to achieve goals that support social, environmental, and economic justice.
At AWH, we believe that the design of our physical spaces affects the way we interact with one another as humans. Design can shift our mind-space and create spaces of safety, comfort, and joy. It is more than functional space-planning or choosing paint colors, the power of architecture is its capacity to create a comprehensive space.
When you join AWH, you will become part of a fast-paced, imaginative, and dedicated team that works together to provide our clients with the highest possible level of service and advice. As a member of the AWH team, we would ask for your commitment to deliver outstanding quality and results that exceed client expectations. We ask that you both anticipate, and problem solve. In addition, we expect your personal accountability in all the products, actions, advice, and results that you provide as a representative of AWH. In return, we are committed to providing you with opportunities to learn, grow and stretch to the highest level of your ability and potential.
