You should be able to apply the repository pattern while using OpenAccess. And DDD should come naturally since OpenAccess supports forward mapping so you can concentrate on your domain model.
In order to help you further and give some more specific answers I will need more details about your architecture. I will also need to know what issues do you have exactly with OpenAccess.
Looking forward to your reply.
