The people behind your projects.


Michael Bool

Michael is a chartered Architect with over 12 years experience in the construction sector. He is passionate about design, building and the successfully delivery of projects for his clients.

The title ‘Architect’ originates from the Greek arkhitekton which when broken down and translated to English creates: arkhi meaning chief + tekton meaning builder

Passionate about how buildings are made, Michael is proud to be an Architect who can build. Learned and practiced in the development of projects for his clients and his own properties, Michael has a ‘hands on’ understanding of the materials, skills and techniques used in the construction of traditional and modern buildings.

Michael founded Oochitecture in 2018 in order to provide a high quality and personal architectural service for residential and commercial clients in South Wales and beyond.

 Prior to establishing Oochitecture in 2018, Michael managed the Cardiff Architectural Studio for ‘Atkins’ a leading global multi-disipline architecture and engineering practice. He has over a decade of experience working in the education, hi-tech industrial and commercial sectors.
