Stephen Pellegrino – Director, Pellegrino Group Australia

“We chose O’Neill Architecture due to previous relationships showing the talented design skills and ability to create something unique. A project that Justin designed sixteen years ago still receives architectural compliments from people believing  it has just been designed and built.

We will continue to use them because  of their hands on approach throughout the different stages of our projects ,the excellent relationship with planning authorities and the valuable negotiating support and focus on our commercial outcome.”

Maree Nugent – Karboora, North Stradbroke Island

“It’s a big responsibility being asked to turn someone’s dream into a reality. When we chose Justin O’Neill to design our beach house he embraced that responsibility with great passion and tenacity  – and we could not have been happier with the outcome.

Justin was the perfect architect for the job. First of all, because he listens. He really listens. Secondly, because he is both empathetic and sensitive to site and environmental considerations.  And then, most importantly, because he is able to think creatively, interpret intelligently, plan pragmatically and handle the challenges of construction that inevitably arise with calm and considered skill.From a client’s perspective, Justin strikes the perfect balance between collaborative and consultative.

All in all, our design and build was a most enjoyable process. We love our house, it continues to surprise, delight and sustain us.”
