Blake Oneill

What do you get when you cross a marathon nut, a coffee enthusiast and a cracker building designer together? Blake. That’s what you get. Blake wakes at 4am, makes a litre of black coffee, trains either himself or a group of bootcampers for a couple of hours, smashes out a day of quality work here at Light House, dabbles in a spot of reading and will likely enjoy delicious food and a 4wd expedition on the weekend.

Professionally, Blake is an experienced Building Designer having worked and led a range of large scale projects here in Canberra for over 10yrs. While the Light House projects are a smaller scale than what he has previously excelled in, Blake was looking for a company that shares his values and respects his autonomy as a designer.

While Light House ticks his architectural boxes, Blake is adamant that a job is a job and spends his time actively contributing to his community and life out from behind the desk. His enthusiasm for balance is contagious, his beard is glorious and we’re all thankful to have him on board.
