Darienne graduated from the University of Kent in 2019. For her final project, she designed a Performing Arts Centre, with a focus on the provision of public space to benefit the local community. Darienne is interested in the social power of architecture and how design can improve people’s lives.
Darienne enjoys landscape painting in her spare time and, prior to starting her architecture degree, completed a Foundation course in Art and design at Arts University Bournemouth. She also enjoys learning new skills and learning to play musical instruments.
Darienne is currently studying her Part 2 Architecture Masters at Portsmouth University as a graduate apprentice. This is a part time course over 4 years, with one day a week at university and 4 days in the office. This allows her to gain practical experience alongside her studies.
