Störmer Murphy and Partners.

We are an established architectural practice, recognized for our award-winning portfolio of successfully completed comissions with a wide range of typologies, scales and budgets. With our dedicated, design-driven team, we place a strong focus on research and innovation, grounded by decades of hands-on building experience. We believe that good design is sustainable design – not only by creating robust, durable buildings with a responsible choice of materials and use of natural resources, but also by shaping unique places with strong identities and a long-lasting cultural significance. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy for this – we are driven by the passion to create.
Working with Störmer Murphy and Partners

We are looking for dedicated architects (m/f/d) to work in the areas of detailed design, design and concept development. Current vacancies: Junior Architect and Architecture Intern.
