Ian Bennett Design Studio




Studio Benicio is a boutique contemporary residential design practice located in Newport Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The studio specialises in all facets of residential design + documentation for new dwellings, alterations + additions, interior design + industrial design.

The design approach of Studio Benicio is that of an intensely site + client specific one, responding to each brief with a "form follows function" mantra, in turn creating an architecture that is informed, aesthetically pleasing + a joy to inhabit.

The studio is a full service practice taking projects from inception to construction completion. We appreciate that each individuals’ needs/circumstances are unique + are happy to discuss part documentation options.

Studio Benicio is led by Principal, Ian Bennett, who has over 10 years experience in the architecture profession both locally + abroad working for many award winning architectural firms including; Dods & Zuccon Architects, ambo architects (London), Black Box Architects + James de Soyres & Associates (formerly de Soyres Malone Architects).
