Ololade is a professional Architect and principal partner at OCA+Design, a multi-disciplinary ideas-focused Architecture Practice, providing services in Architecture, Design, Construction Project Management and Contract administration.

Born on the 3rd of March 1985, Ololade understood layman concepts in Architecture by being involved in the building design of her parent's first home. Her desire to have an en suite room to herself was priority and reason for taking interest in the entire design prepared by her close uncle, a young architect at the time and founder of Arthur Reynolds Nigeria, an Architectural Firm. It was 1997, and to ensure she got her room she drew her first floor plan by mimicking blue prints she saw in her uncle’s possession

Ololade has a BSc (Hons) in Architecture from the University of Lagos and a Masters in Environmental Design from the same university. As an alumna of Queens College Yaba, she places high importance on self-development, working hard and achieving results. She is a registered Architect, licensed to practice in Nigeria, and has worked in the AEC industry since 2007. Ololade is the current Public Relations Officer of the local chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Architects, in Rivers State.
