Who We Are

Ben Solomon is Managing Director of, and Principal Designer at, Nomolos Ltd.

He is internationally and locally qualified, with more than 15 years’ experience studying and designing in New Zealand and abroad.

Knowledgeable, skilled and trained in producing quality, well thought-out residential and commercial designs, Ben brings a flair and enthusiasm for the latest in international technology and best practice to each and every project.

Originally from South Africa, Ben came to New Zealand with his wife Karen in 2007. In early 2015, the couple welcomed their son Noah into the world, cementing their love for the Blenheim way of life. Part of his passion for Blenheim is the need for designs which embrace the sunny, relaxed aesthetic of the region – combining lifestyle and sustainability.

A talented draughtsman, prior to establishing Nomolos, Ben worked with one of the most recognised names in the construction and residential building industry – GJ Gardner Homes. Building a solid reputation with GJ Gardner Homes franchises in both Blenheim and Canterbury, Nomolos still provides a regular draughting service to GJ Gardner and its clients.

Experienced in architectural draughting, construction, project management, CAD and ArchiCAD, Ben has a comprehensive knowledge of the design and construction industry.

Particularly well-versed in 3D visualisation services, Ben can create realistic photo-like stills, animated walk-through videos and self-explore building models that will help you to visualise the finished concept and bring your design to life.
A member of Architectural Designers New Zealand, Ben is required to hold a recognised professional qualification and to undertake regular professional development. Ben is also a registered Licensed Building Practitioner carrying a Design 2 License.
