Just like your resume you need a really compelling cover letter to back your resume. It is wise to understand that your architecture cover letter is an introduction to your resume and should be short.
Below examples are slightly lengthier to cover everything you can write in your cover letter. You should pick the right things to write on your cover letter based on your particular situation and job skills.
The ideal length of a cover letter is 150-200 words.
To help you write your cover letter, here are some samples to take inspiration from.

Dear Mr. Jackson,
This is to express my interest in the Sr. Architect job advertised on indeed.com.
My experience in the sector has been into the design and architecture of commercial properties for the most part while I have done a couple of projects in housing establishments as well.
More precisely, I single-handedly prepare drawings, develop designs, create, and present architectural presentations. Other than the creation of AutoCAD and construction documents, I’m involved in general office management on a day-to-day basis. I also visit annual architectural meetings to learn about new developments in the area and bring them to use in my projects. All projects I have worked on getting booked for sale before the completion of the construction.
In total, I have completed 21 commercial complexes and 5 residential societies in the past 4 years.
I would love to bring my knowledge and experience to use in the improvement of the design and development of your world-class facilities. I’m psyched to be applying here and hoping to hear from you for a face-to-face meeting.
I will follow up with you on my application and candidacy in a week’s time to learn if there is any more information I can share with you to help you evaluate my credentials against the job opportunity.
Best Regards, James Fletcher
