About QOH + OHD

2022 will mark the 40-year anniversary of QOH + OHD (O’Hanlon Consulting Group).

O’Hanlon Design Pty Ltd was founded in 1982 by Jane and Terry O’Hanlon, providing Architectural and Landscape Architectural services prior to teaming up with architect Tony Quinn in 1986 to form Quinn O’Hanlon Architects Pty Ltd (trading as QOH Architects). In the years since, the O’Hanlon Consulting Group has expanded to incorporate Project Management and Interior Design services, as well as Access and Environmental consulting. When combined with the long-standing collaboration with O’Hanlon Design, QOH Architects is able to provide a diverse and tailored solution for every client, offering a full Architectural service including Master Planning, Design Documentation, Contract Administration and Project Management.

With offices in Sydney, Newcastle and Geelong, QOH Architects can provide professional services of the highest standards to clients throughout Sydney, Wollongong, the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter, regional NSW and the ACT, as well as Melbourne, Geelong, and regional VIC.

As an employer we strongly encourage a team environment ensuring to nurture our staff’s unique skill sets and allowing them to develop and pursue their interests. We believe that encouraging the individual creates a stronger, more diverse team where every employee is valued. This in turn allows us to better service our clients and their unique interests.

Our design philosophy is centered around community and collaboration.

We create unique and quality designs whilst working within the budget and time constraints of individual projects. We take care to communicate clearly and in response listen intently to the briefs, parameters and aspirations of our clients and their projects.

It is also a strong belief at QOH Architects that the built form of a project should be respectful and sympathetic to the surrounding environment and context in which it is situated.

QOH Architects have experience in a significant variety of projects and have been involved in the design and delivery of quality large scale university and educational facilities, as well as community and sporting facilities. With extensive experience in contemporary and heritage architecture as well as Master Planning, QOH Architects are able to provide an approach to design and documentation that is grounded in providing workable solutions for our clients’ needs.
