Ben Brady heads Linetype Architectural, an enthusiastic architectural studio based in Redcliffs, Christchurch. The practice specialises in bespoke residential new homes and alterations.
‘We enjoy matching the passion our clients have for their projects,’ he compares his love of domestic architecture with experience of commercial industry.
‘And, when it comes to the finished project we are always just as excited as our clients to experience the building in real life. It’s a joy for us to see the result of everyone’s hard work as well as experiencing the spaces we’ve envisioned and seeing the play of light across forms.’
The small team at Linetype Architectural use a careful eye for detail and proportion, paired with practical ‘buildability,’ to deliver exciting architecture that clients love and builders take pride in.
Following graduation, Ben enjoyed a good grounding working under highly respected New Zealand architect, Cymon Allfrey, where he was a key team member of three award winning projects.
A background in Fine Arts, working on commission to produce paintings and sculptures, and earlier years spent as a sheetmetal worker, serves Brady well in delivering creative design responses tempered with the down-to-earth practicality a building contractor can relate to.
