At Bluebird Day Architecture we believe in Architecture as Lifestyle. The focus of our work, whether it be a weekend getaway peeking out over the shoreline, or a mountaintop restaurant at your favorite ski slope, is to create spaces that support our clients active lifestyles. Our approach to work is to support our own active lifestyles. We absolutely love what we do. We love our work, but it's not all that we love. We have family, we have friends and we have a genuine drive to get outside and spend time with them. Hiking, biking, skiing, sailing, fly fishing, sitting on the beach and watching the sun set... whatever. We love to get outside and play. These are priorities for our clients and our staff. Ensuring that both clients and staff can live full lives (whatever that means to you) is our priority. Otherwise... what's the point? 

We are always looking for talented design staff. We are looking to create a greater diversity among our teams backgrounds, interests and experience. Even if we don't have a current opening, if you share our values, if you like the work we do and our approach to the work/life balance, let us know.
