Established in 2013, Cavill Architects was created to deliver civic-minded projects of the highest quality.

 

Having practiced together in their formative years, Directors Andrew D’Occhio and Sandy Cavill now lead the studio across an expanding range of briefs including public works, education, heritage revitalization, master planning, accommodation, and single residences.

Sandy Cavill | Practice Director

 

Prior to the establishment of Cavill Architects in 2013, Sandy developed a particular area of expertise in commercial and public architecture while collaborating on an array of notable projects in former practice.

Of this earlier project work, it was Sandy’s experience in market retail design that led to one of Cavill Architects’ earliest commissions, ‘The Stores’.

Completed in 2015, this and other award-winning projects established the office’s reputation for civic-minded architecture and led to a number of increasingly important commissions.

Along with co-director Andrew D’Occhio, Sandy continues to drive the office in its ambition for civic-minded contributions in projects large and small.

Lucy Hinchliff | Studio & Marketing Manager

 

Having graduated her Bachelors degree in Architectural Studies in 2021, Lucy has formed a strong foundation to work within the design industry.

Lucy works closely with the directors to ensure the streamlining of Cavill Architects’ operations, including management of workplace systems, bookkeeping, marketing, communication, and event management.

Her inherent desire to learn, and her collaborative skills are integral in championing our office culture and ensuring the studio runs smoothly while predicting the ongoing needs of the team.

Simon works for clients across a variety of building types and has successfully delivered both complicated, small and large scaled commercial and mixed-use projects across the east-coast.
