“As an architect you have to be visionary about the future but at the same time you also serve society, be part of shaping the world”

Working at Mecanoo

Our projects are known for the special attention we pay to innovation, context, materiality, detail, and sustainability: no two Mecanoo projects are the same. Led by four partners, including Francine Houben as Creative Director, Mecanoo’s office is built by a team from over 25 different nationalities based in the historic heart of Delft. Our offices in Manchester, London (UK), Kaohsiung (Taiwan), New York, and Washington D.C. (US) extend and reinforce our base in The Netherlands.

Mecanoo welcomes challenging briefs and projects of varying sizes across Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America. Our multi-disciplinary practice attracts and develops the most talented architects, engineers, urbanists, landscape architects, interior architects and architectural technicians from around the world.

Our long-term emphasis is on the developmental potential of our employees and, as such, Mecanoo is always interested in hearing from exceptional candidates with the skills to work on diverse projects of all scales. Our ongoing internship programme aims to provide designers in training with opportunities to flex their muscles on projects being designed and completed around the world.
