Established in 1992, Village Well grew from the eclectic community owned and managed Ross House in Flinders Lane, Melbourne. This start helped to create a value driven company that seeks to put people at the heart of all places and developments. Village Well believe that Placemaking is key in delivering a more inclusive and regenerative future and looks for opportunities to apply their 25 years of Placemaking experience.
Village Well was instrumental in the activation of Melbourne’s Flinders Lane and Degraves Street in the early 90’s, a process which successfully catalysed the transformation of other laneways and created some of Melbourne’s iconic experiences. They created and operated the Queen Victoria Night Markets, and were active in creating an active community space at the Abbotsford Convent. Since then, Village Well has not only worked with over 1000 cities and towns across Australia bus also across the world. It has seen much iteration, with each group learning from the last while still looking to the future.
