About Cassie and Cassie Building Design and Consulting

We are a young, international, dynamic team consisting of Kalene Cassie, Craig Cassie and Jackie Hansen.

Kalene and Craig met at University in South Africa where they studied Bachelor of Architectural Studies, followed by their Bachelor of Architecture (now called Master of Architecture) degrees. Craig moved to Sydney and completed his B.Arch at UTS. They met up again in Dublin, Ireland, their home for 4 years before settling permanently in Sydney, Australia.
Craig worked on some challenging and cutting-edge home designs in South Africa and Sydney. Kalene’s South African experience ranged from large residential estates to Urban Design and Regeneration projects, including Social Housing and Tourism projects.

Craig headed up the architecture department of a dynamic practice in Ireland, designing multi-storey residential projects, multi-purpose heritage buildings and unique single homes. Kalene continued her residential experience masterplanning new estates and designing and detailing a variety of homes within the estates, along with a few conservation buildings.

On moving to back to Sydney, Craig concentrated on a large project consisting of two residential towers in Queensland, later becoming Practice Manager at his firm. Kalene worked on a diverse range of projects in Sydney such as Tertiary Junior and Early Learning Education Centres, Residential Developments and Hospitality.

After becoming parents, Craig and Kalene accumulated a few of their own projects and the work started flowing in.

Don’t forget the Labradors. Harper and Jozi decorate our floor for most of the day.

We have formed great friendships and learnt to understand each other, panic and laugh together. Most of all, we laugh…a lot.
