About Lorcan O’Herlihy, LOHA

Established in 1994 by architect Lorcan O’Herlihy (FAIA), LOHA is an award-winning architecture and urban design practice with offices in Los Angeles and Detroit. Driven by Irish-born Lorcan’s passion and creative vision, the 25-person team has built a robust portfolio of work that is “rooted in embracing architecture’s role as a catalyst for change,” they explain. 

“With a conscious understanding that architecture operates within a layered context of political, developmental, environmental, and social structures, LOHA seeks to elevate the human condition via the built environment.”

“We work with a diverse group of stakeholders to deliver work, ranging from art galleries, bus shelters and large-scale neighbourhood plans, to large mixed-use developments, supportive housing and university residential complexes.”

Titled Inky Dhow, the collection has naturally followed on from the designer’s original Dhow series of drawings, first imagined on a trip to Oman where she was transfixed by the sails of the dhow boats as they rippled in the wind on their passage out to the Arabian Sea.

An ordinary brick home in WA illuminated by Ian Strange's artistry
Ian first spotted the home in 2015, decades after it belonged to a thriving suburban township of over 700 residents. Since then, the house – like its neighbours – was sold to the Western Australian Land Authority, which plans to clear the plot for an industrial precinct ideated in the late ’90s. Having only conceptualised a proposal […]
