pilot is a boutique interior architecture And design studio with a hands-on approach and an eye for detail

If you’re looking for a creative, personal and professional design journey, then you’ve come to the right place.



Pilot is an emerging design studio headed by Interior Architect Cara Gabriel. 

Cara spent 10 years working with some of Melbourne’s best design studios, and she brings this extensive experience to Pilot.

Pilot is committed to taking you on a design journey from start to finish, working closely with you to realise the potential of your space. 


There is no ‘Pilot formula’ to design, each project is considered individually. We draw inspiration from your vision, the brand, the space, the location or the

history of the site.  From this we create an original design response to best represent you/your brand.

In order to be hands-on for each and every project, Pilot will remain as a purposely small studio, only taking on a limited number of projects at any one time. 

Cara will dedicate herself to your project throughout the entire process.

We were looking for something unique and amazing for a great warehouse space, and CARA delivered well above expectations, and achieved this on time and on budget”

- Andrew Batt, CEO, Bellabox
