what we offer
A few things we’re great at
Benichou Architects can help you with all stages of your project. Spanning all services including Architecture, Interiors and Landscape Design, let us provide you with expert help and guidance from the initial meeting to handing over the keys.
Planning and Permits
Let us navigate the complex task of dealing with council and maximising the potential of your site. We prepare planning applications and have extensive experience with tricky sites including heritage and bush fire areas.
Design and Documentation
Our construction experience and expert knowledge of interior design allows us to provide clear and considered construction drawings. Saving you time and money. We can provide guidance on material choice, kitchen and bathroom design or retail fitout.
Once the planning and building permits are in place, we can help guide you through the contractor selection and building phase. Acting as your representative, we can ensure projects are built to our exacting standards. Keeping a close eye on the quality, cost and timliness of your build.
The secret to our success..
We believe the secret to a succesful project is working in harmony and balance. With nature. With clients. With builders. With neighbours. With each unique project, we endeavor to foster strong relationships and build lasting friendships with everyone we work with.
A big part of our journey at Benichou Architects is teaching and the passing on of knowledge. We engage with students at several Victorian universities teaching design studio and interior design. Each semester, we present a housing based design studio at Melbourne University and interior design technology at RMIT. We are active in the architectural community and participate in ongoing innovative architectural discourse.
We have a wide array of projects and styles. Each design is tailored to suit a specific site, client brief and architectural ambition. See some featured works below.
