Benny Kuriakose started his career in 1984 and received his basic lessons in architecture under the tutelage of Laurie Baker. The Charles Wallace India Trust Award that he received in 1986 took him to the University of York, UK, to do an MA in Conservation Studies. He obtained his doctorate from the Indian Institute of Technology - Madras.
Benny's approach to architecture can be seen in the range of his work: in individual houses, resorts and institutional projects, such as Dakshinachitra in Chennai, the rehabilitation of disaster affected sites at Nagapattinam, Bhuj or Latur and in the Heritage Project at Muziris in Kerala. He was awarded the Inside Outside Designer of the Year 2001 and the Celebration of Architecture award in 2012. He has offered his services as consultant to UNDP, various State Governments and other organisations.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
