Ignite is pleased to announce the appointment of Gerardo Oiz as Associate. This internal promotion recognises Gerardo’s professionalism and contribution to the company and its Sydney studio.
After graduating from Udelar University in Uruguay, with a Masters in Architecture, Gerardo worked on commercial and residential building projects. He moved to Australia over twenty years ago where he has been involved with high-profile projects including the bid for the Sydney Olympic Stadium.

Since joining Ignite two years ago, Gerardo has played a pivotal role in the design of the O’Connell Street development in Adelaide, the Star Mountain Plaza Apartment Building, and the Event Cinemas Complex at the Smithfield Shopping Centre in Cairns.
The appointment also reflects Ignite’s successful growth strategy, and commitment to providing professional development and a career pathway for their employees.
