Employment & Internships

Shophouse & Co is a placemaking studio and we are driven by a desire to create urban spaces that are vibrant and inclusive places to live, work, and play. 

The collaborative, pioneering and creative spirit is fundamental to the culture of the studio and most of our work involves innovating ways to make things happen with others. We also begin each project with asking “Why” and “Why Not?” before dwelling on the “What” and “How”. 

We are looking for creative, adventurous people with an amazing ability to multi task and work on different projects at any given time. Beyond talents and skills, what we are looking for are people who are grounded with a “Never Say No” attitude and positive values to join our multidisciplinary team. You will work in a fast-paced, creative and culturally enterprising environment where everyday feels like being in a new start-up! Things may not always be neat and structured but there will be fulfilment as you challenge yourself to deliver projects that make a difference to the city and the communities in it.
