Benn + Penna Architecture <

 

Benn + Penna is a multi award winning professional consultancy in architecture and interior design. We are a design focused practice that specialises in residential alterations and new houses, along with small-to-medium scale commercial fitouts and public spaces.

Within our industry we have gained a reputation as an office highly committed to good design with a focus on attention to detail, targeted carefully to our individual clients. Our work has covered metropolitan areas of Sydney along with regional areas such as the Southern Highlands, Hunter Valley and Hawkesbury River. Long term sustainable outcomes and budgetary constraints are taken very seriously and always form the core of our decision making process. High importance is placed on the consultation process with clients and other stakeholders, an approach that has enabled the practice to regularly negotiate buildings through challenging Council approvals. 

The Office’s work has been widely published; including exhibited at the 2014 Sydney Architecture Festival, along with numerous books and publications, and most recently on Channel 7’s Better Homes & Gardens. In 2014 the practice was honoured with a NSW Architecture Award for our Balmain Houses – one of the highest accolades possible for architecture in NSW, whilst our Southern Highlands House was also shortlisted in the small projects category.

In 2016 director Andrew Benn was selected by the Australian Institute of Architects as one of its jury members for the NSW Architecture Awards. Andrew is also engaged as the expert architect for the national magazine InsideOUT and has a column in each month’s edition providing advice to home owner’s thinking of renovating.
