John Kavanagh

B Arch (Hons), Chartered Architect

John established BKA in 2000 with John Baker, following a successful 15-year architectural career in Sydney and London. He regularly mentors architects as part of the Australian Institute of Architects’ mentorship scheme and tutors at the University of Technology, Sydney. John has the enviable ability to develop a strong vision for a site and to carry that vision from the master plan to the final, finest detail. From negotiating large re-zoning projects to the design of individual luxury residences, he is adept at any scale of project. John can capably balance the commercial imperative of a project with local council requirements, and in doing so grasp the true potential of a site. He has been particularly active in the education sector, with numerous projects for the Catholic Education Office and childcare centres for the private sector.
