Successful material combinations, carefully considered spatial planning and a clear vision towards design outcomes are the driving principles behind Caia Di Lizio’s designs.


Established in 2008, Caia Di Lizio works across many sectors from high-end residential, to retail fit-outs, hospitality, commercial developments and small renovations. Caia Di Lizio prides itself on working collaboratively with architects, builders, engineers, graphic designers and most importantly, our clients to understanding and fulfil their needs. Our practice works with architects and builders in the early design and planning stages to ensure cohesive and authentic spaces. Being a small interior design practice enables us to provide personalised service to our varied clients no matter how big or small the project. Our design team are passionate and dedicated to the best design outcomes that far exceed our clients expectations. The firm strives to inject fresh and innovative ideas into all our design projects. We believe it is extremely important to understand how people use space and design accordingly.

Our work has seen the design of Spring Racing Carnival marquees, design and twinning of the iconic Vallhalla Cinema (Sydney), an award-winning high-end residential project in Melbourne's CBD, to high profile restaurants at Crown Casino. Our work has been featured in leading magazines and publications.
