Katja Stille

Director, Tibbalds & President, Urban Design Council

Katja Stille is a Director of Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design, an award-winning planning and urban design consultancy, and Chair of the Urban Design Group.
As an experienced urban designer she works collaboratively across professional boundaries to deliver high quality places. Working with private and public sector clients, as well as communities, Katja’s objective is to push the placemaking agenda and ensure we are building people-friendly places. Her work ranges across a broad spectrum, including strategic masterplanning, the creation of new communities, regeneration projects and design advice.
Katja seeks to unlock the issues that prevent us from delivering good design and placemaking. Currently one of her projects is delivering Northstowe, a new town in Cambridgeshire, promoted by Homes England, and one of the NHS’s Healthy New Towns. Her work incorporates principles of health and well-being from early masterplanning stages through to design codes and delivery.
