dhk’s internship programme is focused on developing future architects and every year our interns are selected from the best talent coming out of universities across the country.

Our internships provide unique hands-on experience working on live projects in a focused project team and involve all aspects of work in an architectural practice from design and documentation up to and including site work.

We currently offer paid full time positions in our Cape Town and Johannesburg studios to architecture and architectural technology students for periods of 6-12 months.

Our interns are appointed by the end of each year in order to start work in January, so please ensure you apply by October/November at the latest. Applications are collected and processed throughout the course of the year. Due to the number of applications received, you may only receive feedback towards the end of the year.
