ABOUT WORKING FOR US

RHAD Architects is an award-winning interdisciplinary architectural and interior design studio based in Dartmouth, NS. Named as one of Canadian Architect magazine’s “Top Ten Emerging Talent” design firms in 2017, RHAD is involved in a mix of residential, commercial, mixed-use, and small-scale institutional projects in addition to public art and community-based initiatives. We are a studio-based practice known for our ability to integrate modern design, sustainability, and livability into holistic projects. We are currently seeking either an Architect or an Intern Architect as well as an Architectural Drafting technologist to join our growing team.
