Tomas O’Malley Architect
Tomas O’Malley is a registered architect offering architectural and interior design services in the Bundaberg/Wide Bay region and South-East Queensland. After ten years working for major national firms DEM, Suters and Allen Jack+Cottier, I decided to establish my own practice. ‘I bring with me a wealth of experience on projects of all scales, having undertaken designs not only in South-East Queensland, but also around Australia and internationally. I approach every project, big and small, with the same enthusiasm to provide an outcome that not only satisfies the client’s requirements, but also aims to do so in a creative and sustainable manner.

St Lucia, Qld, 2011
Following promotion to Brisbane Premier League, the University of Queensland Football Club are required to upgrade their facilities in order to continue competing in the top tier league beyond 2012. The club approached Tomas O’Malley to provide conceptual designs that will assist the club in raising funds to undertake this major redevelopment. The project consists of 2 changerooms and referee’s room on the ground floor, along with public amenities and a kiosk, while the upper level houses the clubhouse, a bar, and a covered viewing terrace. In addition, the existing changerooms and kiosk will be refurbished to provide an additional 2 changerooms and equipment storage.
Burnett River House
A new home located on the banks of the Burnett River, five minutes from the Bundaberg CBD. Sited on a battleaxe block, the plan for the house creates a series of living spaces that make the most of the views to the river, while responding to the site orientation and prevailing breezes to provide comfortable spaces for all situations and seasons.
Gumly Gumly House
A three-storey oceanfront home on a small corner block, the design began by establishing the maximum allowable building envelope then carving voids out of and through it. This has resulted in a network of interlinking internal volumes that provide a sense of connection through all levels. Extensive use of timber and natural stone gives the home a warm and inviting character, paired with expansive openings that allow the living areas to spill out directly onto the rolling front lawn and on to the beach beyond.
