Jessica Ryder

Architect, BA(Hons) MArch

Jessica joined Purcell’s Cambridge office in August 2018 as a Part II Architectural Assistant after completing her BA(Hons) and MArch at the University of Kent. Her previous professional experience was at a classical design practice where she worked predominantly on high-end residential projects.

She has a keen interest in contextual design within historically sensitive urban areas; in how the new fits with the old. Through drawing streetscapes of Canterbury for her final year dissertation, Jessica enjoyed exploring how understanding the patterns within a historic context can inform appropriate contemporary design within historic cities.
