Penny joined the practice in 2021 as an Architectural assistant, after graduating from De Montfort University in Leicester and finishing with a first.
Her final year project was a whiskey distillery juxtaposed with a performance venue, reviving the old existing mill factories of the site into a place that can be enjoyed by the whole community of Leicester and beyond. Working with existing buildings is something Penny always looks to for inspiration and as a way of moving her design skills forward. She is interested in how architecture of the past and its environmental impact informs design in the future.
Penny supports Matt Whitby is Studio 1 and is currently working on a residential scheme that captures these elements of her design interest fully.
In her spare time Penny enjoys painting and yoga, as well as watching too many movies and Formula 1.
