Publica brings research and intelligence to the design development process. We think strategically and creatively about places, at every scale. We work with clients at all stages of the process – from feasibility and early testing of ideas to submission of planning documentation and client advisory during detailed design stages.

We are adept at collaborating with design teams and experts across diverse disciplines. We work alongside transport planners on gyratory removal schemes, civil engineers on major infrastructure projects and some of the UK’s leading architects on masterplans and estate renewal projects. 

Publica works on significant development projects and masterplans in London and the UK, using in-depth local area research to establish design principles and develop masterplan briefs and frameworks for new urban fabric and established neighbourhoods.
