Edward Sydney "Sidney" Luttrell (1872–1932) and his brother Alfred Edward Luttrell (1865–1924) were partners of S. & A. Luttrell, a firm of architects and building contractors noted for its contributions to New Zealand architecture, both in terms of style and technology.[1] The practice was established in Launceston, Tasmania in 1897 when Alfred who was operating his own architectural practice, went into partnership with his younger brother and former apprentice Sidney, under the original name A. & S. Luttrell. The brothers moved to Christchurch, New Zealand and by 1902 were submitting tender notices there.[1] Sidney Luttrell was also noted for his keen interest in horse racing. He was a part-owner of Sasanoff, winner of the Melbourne Cup in 1916.[1]
