Fooi is a registered architect and the director of OOF.
Before starting her own practice, Fooi worked in award winning architectural practices in Brisbane and Melbourne as well as a short stint in Cologne, Germany. She has worked on a wild variety of projects ranging from souvlaki shops and bathroom renos to nightclubs, apartment towers, freeway infrastructure and just about anything in between.
Since starting OOF in 2005, she has devoted herself to her one true love: one-off residential projects that are as unique as their owners.
She loves the charms + challenges of inner city projects and copes with - maybe even enjoys - demanding heritage contexts, weird sites + eccentric clients. She considers it a privilege to be able to work with clients on their most personal and important project - their home.
Outside the office, Fooi is currently chair of the board of directors at ArchiTeam, an architects' co-operative representing over 650 architects in Australia.
She is also an archi film nerd and helps to run DADo, the film society of the Robin Boyd Foundation. If you've never visited the Walsh St House - do yourselves a favour!
She loves to travel, takes way too many photos and maintains a strict regime of groundless optimism by supporting the St Kilda Football Club
