KIN ARCHITECTS are passionate about good design. We listen to our clients. The best outcomes are achieved in collaboration. We believe that buildings should be energy efficient, space efficient and cost efficient.

We love thinking about how spaces can be a delight to live and work within. Our combined expertise of 14 years delivering award winning designs allows us to manage projects from concept to completion on renovations, commercial fitouts and hospitality projects.

Marjorie has quickly established herself as a forward-thinking Architect with great skill and enthusiasm for her projects. Her passion for design with elegant and practical solutions are evident in several of her award winning boutique residential and commercial projects. 

Marjorie developed all-round skills and knowledge in Architecture through her twin interests in construction and environment. She has lived, worked and studied in Brisbane, Australia and Stockholm, Sweden. Her practical knowledge and professional abilities make her an exceptional asset on all projects that she manages. To Marjorie, architecture is a chance to collaborate with clients and consultants to learn from other people’s life experiences and bring her own to a dynamic and enjoyable experience. 

Marjorie’s interest in architecture also extends to her varied volunteer work (Solomon Island Tsunami reconstruction and Venice Biennale construction team). Her passion in architecture is complemented by her love of surfing and travel.
Having spent seven years working alongside mentor Kieron Gait on award-winning boutique residential projects, Leah is now defining her own direction with Marjorie. She brings with her a keen interest in the creation of new and renovated homes and enjoys the process of intensive collaboration with clients.

The knowledge and experience Leah has gained in practice is shared with students through her significant contribution to teaching at both Bond University and the University of Queensland, including with a UQ Social Outreach Studio initiative in Far North Queensland Indigenous communities.

Leah is a Chapter Councillor for the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) and her genuine and infectious enthusiasm for the built environment and the people who inhabit our cities has led to her involvement with advocacy and local heritage issues. This year Leah was a State Juror for the AIA Queensland Architecture Awards. She is also a recipient of the 2018 AIA Dulux Study Tour Prize, which recognises excellence in design, community involvement and education.
