Ben Callery Architects




Ben is passionate about design and sustainability and working with like-minded people to make beautiful buildings. Ben graduated from University of Melbourne Masters of Architecture in 2003. He was formerly Senior Design Architect at Zen Architects, a respected firm specializing in sustainable architecture in Melbourne. Over 10 years Ben designed and project managed many buildings that won awards including The Sustainability Awards, Australian Timber Design Awards, City of Yarra Sustainability Awards and City of Bayside Sustainability Awards. Ben regularly presents at The University of Melbourne Faculty of Architecture and has shared his expertise at events including The Green magazine ‘green talks,’ The Australian Institute of Architects Sustainable Architecture Forum, The Sustainable Living Festival, Pecha Kucha and Green Build. Outside work, Ben loves spending time with his young family and enjoys all sports, particularly running, snowboarding and, somewhat tragically, the Saints in the footy.


Tim loves working closely with clients to craft playful, innovative and efficient spaces. He graduated from Monash University’s Masters of Architecture programme in 2016 having studied in Australia, Italy, China and Japan, and has a range of experience working in commercial and residential design. Tim has awesome skills in Architectural visualisation, 3D modelling and Computer aided design and can create amazing 3D images. Tim has a keen interest in open-water swimming and, almost as tragically as Ben, is a one-eyed supporter of the Melbourne Demons.

Jennifer thrives when designing spaces that combine functionality, materiality and detail to create elegant interiors.  Jennifer also enjoys immersing herself in many other avenues of design and creative outlets. One of her current pursuits is designing and fabricating her own clothing, and showcasing these on her own sewing tutorial website.
