Our team

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. Post-graduation he worked, and became Senior Design Architect, at a respected Melbourne based firm specializing in sustainable architecture. Over 10 years Ben designed and project managed many buildings for happy clients and winning awards including The Sustainability Awards, Australian Timber Design Awards, City of Yarra Sustainability Awards and City of Bayside Sustainability Awards. Ben started his own practice in 2014 with the aim of producing creative sustainable buildings that are a delight for our clients to occupy with minimal environmental impact. 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.


Matt graduated from the University of Melbourne’s Master of Architecture programme in 2017, spending some of this time based in Berlin. He is passionate about design and sustainability, with a particular interest in biomimicry. His previous experience has ranged from educational, civic and commercial projects, where he has developed skills in 3D modelling, BIM, visualization & diagrammatic representation. He has a love for the great outdoors, and regularly goes exploring outside of Melbourne. He rounds out the footy banter being an enthusiastic Dons supporter.


Jennifer has a passion for creating beautiful things. She has completed a Bachelor of Environments (Architecture) and Masters of Architecture at The University of Melbourne. Jennifer has experience in high-end residential architecture and developed expertise in interior design. 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.

Phew.
