Epoch Architecture is a boutique architectural firm and the culmination of the creative vision of two passionate and down-to-earth individuals.

Epoch is led by the former Associate Director of one of Brisbane's leading architectural firms. It is a vision founded on an extensive, award winning body of expertise, across both large and small, simple and complex architectural projects.    

The decision to create Epoch went hand in hand with the return to Noosa. It's where their architectural career began and the place they have begun to establish roots and call home. The mission is simple, it is to tailor great architecture to suit every budget - to get to know you, speak to you face-to-face, and collaborate with you on your project to bring your vision to life.


Founded by Kelly Martin and Ken Makinson in early 2015

Epoch Architecture have the knowledge, experience and determination to tackle any project

Architect / Director

Kelly graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Queensland in 2003. She has since produced award winning high end residential and commercial projects, educational facilities and government funded projects, in both Australia and overseas.

Kelly’s attachment with Noosa started shortly after completing uni with a 2 and a half year stint working under Tim Ditchfield & Peter Middap helping create some exceptional local architecture such as the multi award winning Peregian Beach House and Noosa Heads Surf Club.

While the coastal lifestyle had firmly taken hold, Kelly had the urge to explore and set off to Asia eventually settling in London where she and Ken met at Broadway Malyan.

Once back in Australia, Kelly held the position of Associate Director at the multi award winning Brisbane firm, Base Architecture.

During the following 5 yrs, Kelly was lead Architect for various projects ranging from residential to large commercial including the iconic Rydges Hotel and Bacchus Restaurant in Southbank.

Kelly’s broad range of experience and can do attitude provide a solid foundation for Epoch on the Sunshine Coast.

Senior Draftsman / Director

Ken stumbled in to architecture in the beautiful Mpumalanga area of South Africa while hoping to bump in to a career involving wild animals (he still kind of is, so if anybody knows of anything... the numbers at the bottom). During his brief stay in SA, Ken armed himself with a diploma of architectural drafting.

Upon returning to his home of England he began working for Broadway Malyan a leading London based international architectural practice. Through BM Ken got the opportunity to work as part of a unique team in London and Abu Dhabi. It was also at BM that Ken met Kelly and began a scandalous office romance. Unfortunately also around this time the GFC showed up to put an end to the age old question 'can bankers fly?'

So with promises of Koalas running amok through the streets. Kelly lured ken over to Australia. Only, she lied. There were no Koalas running amok. Not even at the designated road crossing points. On a plus side though he now gets to hear the English language butchered on a daily basis.

It's been 5 years since Ken arrived on the island of deception and in that time he has drafted for some of the biggest builders in Australia through Threesixty and for the last year at Plantation Homes, Queensland's number one builder. And now Epoch, Ken cannot wait to see where this journey will take him, Kelly and of course you.  Although he is still slightly miffed over the lack of gallivanting marsupials.
