Amy Derby


Originally trained as an engineer, Amy graduated from the University of Leeds in 2016 with an MEng in Architectural Engineering before joining a large engineering consultancy practice. A desire to focus more on design, combined with a love of nature inspired by growing up in the Weald of Kent and Cornwall, led her to change focus and study at the London College of Garden Design.

Graduating with a distinction in 2018, and with a finalist nomination for the SGD Awards in the student category, Amy gained experience working on residential, commercial and hospitality projects, bringing nature into the built environment. Since joining Marcus Barnett Studio in 2020, she brings her engineering expertise to contemporary designs in both residential and commercial spaces.
