BArch, MArch (UQ)
Kate Reilly graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Queensland in 2016. Prior to joining Blight Rayner in mid-2018, Kate worked at Sparc* Architects principally in commercial and industrial projects, and she undertook the documentation and coordination of the Marist Tower Restoration at Marist College, Ashgrove.
Kate’s training also included a year’s work experience with Georg Doering Architekten BDA in Dusseldorf Germany, where she worked on low-mid multi-residential projects and high-end private houses.
Since joining Blight Rayner, Kate has contributed significantly to two large-scale and complex master plans for inner urban Brisbane sites involving joint public/private ownership. Her ability to synthesise urban design, technical and economic parameters is exceptional, and Kate has a long career ahead in taking on challenging urban projects as well as in detailed design. She was a Guest Speaker at Brisbane’s Pecha Kucha event in 2016, speaking on livability in high-density housing.
I’m a believer in the interdependence between architecture and urban design. While urban design grapples with macro issues like transport connectivity and socio-cultural relationships, it is architecture which plays the foremost role in realising successful solutions for each specific setting.
