Cecilia Lindström

Cecilia is an urban designer at Studio Egret West with 10 years working experience specialising in masterplanning, urban design and strategic frameworks.

Since joining Studio Egret West in 2007, Cecilia has been involved in a wide range of mixed-use schemes and public realm projects. Most recently, she has been the project lead for Project Diesel, the 2,500 redevelopment of the Ford Factory in Dagenham; Also the redevelopment of the former National Shipyard No 1 site in Chepstow, South Wales, and the regeneration of the iconic Alton West Estate in Roehampton, proposing a series of focused interventions to upgrade the residential fabric, revitalise the civic centres, and reprogram the public realm. 

Cecilia was the design team project manager for the Stratford Public Spaces, which delivered a series of public realm upgrades and a 450metre long kinetic sculpture to regenerate and consolidate Stratford Island in time for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

She coordinated the successful outline planning application for Surrey Canal London’s Sporting Village – a comprehensive new mixed-use neighbourhood of up to 2,500 homes and a range of communal and commercial elements, based around a new regional centre of sporting excellence. She also worked on the Old Vinyl Factory outline planning application for the former EMI headquarter in West London which proposed to bring the area back to life as a mixed-use urban neighbourhood that includes the creative reuse of the retained but derelict factory buildings.

She has prepared numerous strategic framework plans and urban design strategies: the masterplan competition for Southwark’s massive 1970s Aylesbury Estate; the proposed regeneration of the 35 Ha South Shields Riverside Framework Plan, including the design of the 10 Ha New Shore Park, featuring walkways, viewing platforms overlooking the River Tyne, and outdoor activity areas and event spaces; phase 2 and 3 of the Greater Middlehaven Project in Middlesbrough including a 30 Ha public realm strategy; the urban design strategy for the renewal of the Sherwood Estate in Royal Tunbridge Wells; and the framework plan for a new eco development in Northern Ireland comprising 350 homes, a series of commercial and cultural/heritage elements, and a renewed public realm.

Cecilia trained as an architect in Stockholm before arriving in London in 2004 to study for her graduate diploma in planning and MSc in urban design at the Bartlett, University College London, where she graduated with a distinction in 2006.
