Benjamin is a founding director of /PLY/, an architectural practice founded on the principle of a cohesive lamination of individual layers creating a single materialisation. Benjamin’s specific expertise lies in conceptual development, visual communication and stakeholder consultation. He has an interest in the theoretical semantics of Architecture and the translation into practical design applications. He has been recognised professionally for several individual projects.
Greg Bond pursued a career in architecture after a misguided detour in commerce. However, his childhood obsession with drawing house plans was the clue his calling was elsewhere. His first professional gig was under the tutelage of Fran Bonato at tectvs and more than 20 years later, he’s worked on everything from Middle Eastern monoliths for Woods Bagot, to high rises in Beijing and Monterey while based in their San Fran office. Several years after returning to Adelaide, he launched AtelierBond, which offers its clients sophisticated design through approachable service.

Leisha’s CV includes senior roles at The Sunday Mail, News of the World, Gulf News and Network Ten. She’s also contributed to the New York Post, SA Life and Harper’s Bazaar Interiors.
