Cassidy Reid

Cassidy is an architectural assistant and urban designer who has worked across a variety of Studio Egret West’s mix-used residential schemes, urban design frameworks and concept stage projects.

Currently she is working on Northlake, a project that will deliver between 2,500-3,000 homes, a lido, a community pavilion, a cycle park and a school. The scheme aspires to create an evolving place, where a number of residential ‘nests’ form multiple communities and share the extension of the Mar Dyke valley and other existing ecological treasures.

Recently she worked on the detail design for Barking 360, a residential led scheme adjacent to Barking station in London. Construction of this high density scheme is due to complete in 2019. Cassidy is also a key member in designing a visionary framework for the post-industrial neighbourhood of Digbeth, Birmingham. Here, the designs provide characterful workspace, playful living and exemplar buildings which embrace the rich history of the site, whilst improving Digbeth’s connectivity and relationship with the City Centre.

 

Other projects where Cassidy has played an integral role include Place des Montrealiaises, a design for a new square in Montreal which accommodates a plethora of new uses that seamlessly stitch together the differing aspects of the surrounding urban fabric. She was also a part of the design team for Peruvian Wharf, a sustainable development in the London Borough of Newham featuring 1,000 new homes.

Cassidy studied both her undergraduate and masters at the Bartlett School of Architecture.
