DesignInc Adelaide is pleased to share the news that two of our studio leaders, Ben Luppino and Sonya Montgomerie, have been promoted to Associate Director. The move strengthens the executive team with two Directors and two Associate Directors now overseeing the Adelaide-based design studio together with the Executive Leadership Team.
I feel joy when I see people enjoy and use the spaces I had a part in creating—this feeling never gets old. It gives me a great sense of achievement and will always be my main motivation.
Ben has been a valuable member of the team since 2006 when he joined the studio as a Graduate of Architecture. As part of the Executive Leadership Team, Ben leads Service Delivery which includes strategic workforce planning, resourcing, project planning and reporting. He is a registered architect with expertise in the design of public infrastructure including community centres, aquatic, sporting and leisure facilities, defence, education and transport.
Ben’s focus is on addressing social needs and creating spaces that provide opportunities for inclusion. This drives his passion for technical problem-solving and designing for the community to provide positive outcomes for a diverse range of end users.
