Architect Dave Bennett and his team are celebrating 25 years of designing carefully considered, sustainable, award-winning work throughout Australia. Previously Bennett Design, Bennett Architecture is a Darwin based company which now provides services nationally with offices in Adelaide, Cairns, Melbourne and Northern NSW.
Starting an architectural practice in Darwin had many advantages, including an extensive portfolio of projects. It gave us the experience, capability and confidence to diversify our scope and involvement in architecture, designing different projects in all environments and typologies while being seen as a ‘safe pair of hands’.
Our clients have entrusted us with a broad range of projects including Northern Territory’s Youth Justice Centres, site redevelopments at RAAF Base Tindal and national facilities for Haulmark.
In the emerging agricultural sector, we delivered an industrial sized aquaponics glasshouse based on emerging technology at the University of Sydney. Following project completion, this sector has been growing rapidly and we have delivered a similar facility in China and currently developing several large agricultural sites to grow medicinal marijuana.
Bennett Architecture is looking forward to the interesting opportunities and challenges in the coming years.
