“Placemaking is the process of making places together that benefit all people, every day”

We are a progressive and world-leading placemaking organisation. We specialise in creating great places.
Using authentic community engagement, we turn public spaces, main streets and town centres, shopping centres, universities, commercial buildings, and tourism centres into places that people love, that they will enjoy, and that will encourage them to stay longer.
We weave diverse specialties into a powerful holistic process we call the 5Ps of Placemaking that creates sustainable value for our clients.

The Village Well Difference

We use an intuitive approach to placemaking, focusing on putting people first. We believe that placemaking is about more than simply delivering a once-off activation in place, but about inspiring action from the community to create real in-place outcomes.
