RAD DAR

in Montenegrin:

RAD=Work
DAR=Talent

RADDAR is an international practice founded in Hong Kong in 2018. After two decades of studying and working in several countries and experiencing the design and construction phases in different cultural and professional settings, Slobo Radoman founded RADDAR to bridge the gaps between design, project management and construction. Our team oversees the entire process which optimizes projects' delivery time, energy and budget. For projects in Hong Kong and Mainland China, RADDAR has delivered interior projects as a one-stop-shop company, from design to delivery.


The RADDAR team is small yet diverse, with broad expertise, strong skills and the ambition to exceed client’s expectations. It consists of full-time staff as well as project-based staff, currently based in Hong Kong, China, Bali and Sweden. RADDAR carefully studies the project’s brief with a critical eye, finding potential for the design innovation from the first contact with the client. By answering the fundamental questions about the project's constraints RADDAR aims for informed design that reveals the project's unique potentials.

Slobodan
Radoman

Slobodan (Slobo) Radoman is a Montenegrin architect living in Hong Kong. Having lived only six years in his home country, Slobo has a natural ability to adapt to different cultures while contributing to each with his critical eye and a bold approach to design. Slobo got an International Baccalaureate Diploma at United World College of the Atlantic in the UK, a BA in Architecture Diploma at Harvard College and an MArch Diploma at MIT, where he also received an Urban Design Certificate. He received several academic awards among which a full scholarship at UWCA and Harvard College, as well as a Legatum Fellowship for Entrepreneurship at MIT.

Prior to launching RADDAR, Slobo worked for world renowned design architecture studios: I.M. Pei (NYC), ODBC (Paris), DPA (Paris), EMBT (Barcelona), and OMA (Hong Kong, NYC, Rotterdam). Slobo has over a decade of experience on more than sixty projects of different scales (events / exhibitions / interiors / architecture / master plans) and phases (concept, schematic & design development through construction administration) in Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America. In the capacity of the project leader or architect, Slobo was in direct contact with the client's project managers, consultants, as well as contractors, promptly responding to design challenges during the process of design and construction.

Join us!

If you would like to join our team please refer to the positions below. FYI you will be tested on everything that you include in your CV and your portfolio, so please avoid glorifying yourself as we prefer to know your actual capabilities. Please also let us know the exact salary amount (or range) and benefits that you expect as compensation; FYI we do not negotiate salaries and expect you to do your own research for what you are worth; after all, if you cannot research your own salary amount, we doubt you can do any research. RADDAR is an equal opportunity employer: this means if you work well and deliver, we will also deliver on our end and pay you; if you slack off, make excuses, waste time and consequently do not deliver, we will also not deliver from our end and we will not pay you. Our payment scheme is that we will sign a contract for 50% of what we agree and the remaining 50% you will receive each month only if you actually deliver your work. How does this work? If we offer you a position, there will be a three month probation during which you will be paid based on your performance: if you agree to deliver a job and do so 100%, then we will pay you 100% of your salary plus an additional 10% as a bonus. This means that at the end of the month you could earn 110% of the agreed salary. We prefer to pay you your bonus right away instead of waiting until the end of the year. Similarly, we will also deduct your salary if you do not perform well: for instance, if you deliver just about 80% of the promised work, you will receive 80% of the 80% of your salary, meaning you will receive 64% of the agreed salary. Why do we do this? To ensure that you have a serious attitude towards work, so if you try to be a slacker you will immediately feel it via your own pay slip. Our financial approach is a consequence of years of experience in working with architects, and we have concluded that those architects that work hard and are serious about their efforts should be rewarded right away, and those who do not should have their payment deducted. We do not accept slackers, manipulators, precious snowflakes, and any other form of sabotaging attitudes that are common in architecture. We are extremely fond of talented, hard working, dedicated staff, and we will reward them right away. So, if you are keen to work and appreciate design thinking, and you can deliver, do apply; if you are not keen to work and do not want to think, and do not want to deliver, save yourself the trouble and do not apply. Thank you!
