Interior Designer/ Interior Architect. London Developer
I often take calls from interior designers or architects who are looking for job with a property developer rather than an architectural practice or interior design company. Rather than being the external consultant, some aspiring interior designers and architects want to influence design from within the developer, arguably having a much greater impact on the finished building. Particularly for residential schemes, it's the smaller details within a development that make all the difference to the lifestyle of those living there.
This Interior Architect / Interior Designer job is with one of London's fastest growing Property Developers. They have been described as a 'market disruptor' within the property development world. Know how to define a 'disruptor'? Well, it does what it says on the tin but to put a more formal spin on it; a disruptor identifies gaps in the property market created by real estate trends that existing property developers and incumbents have missed. Whichever way you put it, these forward thinking, fast growing, 'disruptor property developers' seem like the place to be and there are some great job opportunities to be had.
Job roles in these new breeds of developers tend to be broader than those in traditional developers and architecture or interior design practices.
