4 Reviews for Ben Callery Architects
We hired Ben to design and project manage the building of our beach house. Ben did a fabulous job and we would highly recommend him as an architect and project manager. He is a good listener and took our ideas, combined them with his experience, knowledge and creativity to produce a plan we were very happy with. He helped us find a great builder and worked with him to make a beautiful house that we love. From start to finish Ben was very professional, well organised, good with deadlines, a good communicator, he looked for solutions and was flexible in his approach. One of the challenges which he handled very well was working with us long distance as we were living in Europe, he was based in Melbourne and our project was in coastal Victoria. He was able to work with us via telephone, email and the occasional face to face meeting and it all went smoothly. Similarly with managing the project long distance, Ben worked very well with the builder. It was overall a very good experience.

Ben designed our home and administered our building contract
We enjoyed working with Ben – it was stress-free; and he was very good at presenting and discussing different options and ideas as the project progressed. We had confidence in his advice plus the advice of other professionals he had helped us choose. They worked well with Ben. We have no hesitation in recommending Ben as an Architect and Project Manager.

Ben has worked with us through all stages of our home renovation - design, development, council approval, documentation, tendering/negotiation, and project management. He has brought imagination, knowledge, solid experience, an eye for detail and a good work ethic to the project. He has listened to us, but brought extra back - which has given a better result than just agreeing with us or telling us what (we thought) we wanted to hear. Arrangements and relationships have been refreshingly transparent and respectful.

Ben Designed two houses for me in Alphington. I am currently living in house 1 and building house 2. Ben was a joy to work with! He was very flexible but gently reined me in when I was getting too fanciful. He has the ability to listen carefully to the brief and come up with practical and beautiful solutions. House 1 is a joy to live in - everything is so well designed that it works brilliantly. There are a couple of features that make the house extra special - they weren't particularly expensive but really added value to the house. He created an energy-efficient, peaceful environment that everyone enjoys. I can't wait to move into House 2!

Commented: Timber used?Thanks tw1973! The floor is Re-milled messmate. It is 'feature grade,' so intentionally has lots of character in it. We used offcuts of the same material for the front and side of the island bench. We...
