Ben Brown

Architecture Graduate,
Member NZIA

Ben Brown completed his Bachelor of Architecture in 2008 at Unitec in Auckland, before moving to Whangarei to join the talented team at HB Architecture.

During his time with HB Architecture, Ben has worked on a large range of projects throughout Northland and wider New Zealand—small residential projects like the Matapouri Pavilion, through to key cultural projects including Church auditoriums, stage 1 of the Salvation Army project and the auditorium for Northcross Church on the North Shore, cultural art centres, national museums such as the National Army Museum Waiouru, and the Knoll Ridge Cafe at Whakapapa Ski Field on Mt. Ruapehu.

Ben’s considerable experience ranges from feasibility studies through to design, documentation, consent, compliance, project observation and procurement.

Ben had a key role in the design and documentation of Te Kakapo, which was the test example for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre, and encompassed examples of the finishes to be carried out on the main building.

Ben brings a high level of visual, spatial, and graphic skills to HB Architecture and is often involved in project submissions, including several award-winning entries.

Recently, Ben has become a NZGBC Green Star Practitioner to keep up-to-date with healthy, less polluting green building practices and to work successfully within a Green Star project.
