Join Our Team
Join our award-winning design firm located in beautiful downtown Norfolk, VA. Established in 1991, VIA design is a future focused, design driven firm. We are passionate about design and enhancing our communities through our work and civic engagement, and our staff through close mentoring, skill building, and exploring the best of the region. Our practice is consistently proactive, collaborating with clients, communities, and local organizations to design impactful solutions that address the most challenging problems of today.
VIA design is comprised of architects, landscape architects, placemakers, interior and industrial designers, graphic and branding designers, and energy modelers. We are seeking to expand upon our pool of talent, skills, and experience with additional team members who share our passions for design, problem solving, and discovery in traditional and non-traditional positions.
Located on the Atlantic coast at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and a short drive to the Blue Ridge mountains, Norfolk and the Tidewater region are being rediscovered as a great destination to live, work, and play, especially for recent graduates. Our closely-knit design team works out of a beautifully renovated, historic building in downtown Norfolk, which has been recognized with numerous awards for design excellence, transformation, and energy leadership. We are nestled among numerous beaches and are steps away from the light rail line, the Elizabeth River waterfront, dining, entertainment, cultural hubs, and diverse housing options.
VIA is advancing the design profession with projects and clients that allow us to explore, experiment, and establish best practices centered on enhancing communities, addressing floodwater resilience, preservation and reconstruction of coastal habitats, and sustainable climate change mitigation strategies. Our Institute of Living Futures JUST 2.0 Program label, AIA 2030 Commitment Signatory, and historic urban home located at 319 E. Plume Street, Norfolk, VA demonstrate our commitment and speak for themselves.
