WE
CONNECT PEOPLE TO PLACE

Who is Village Well?

Village Well is Australia’s first placemaking consultancy, with 30 years of proven success in connecting people to place for balanced commercial and social outcomes. We believe doing good is good for business and know how to bring the spark to unleash creative potential.

 

Our team has extensive experience in urban planning, place visioning, design development, community engagement, retail precinct curation and management for property, educational institutions and government. Together with our clients and communities, we generate inspiring narratives and practical action plans that bring places to life and facilitate public benefit balanced by commercial return.

Through Village Well’s unique 5P lens – People, Product, Program, Physical Environment and Planet - our regenerative place-based approach has been tested and perfected to provide enduring value for our clients, their partners and communities.

The Village Well difference

  • Human experience-led, not design-led

  • Our ground plane experience visions create buy-in, attract investment and generate return

  • Collaboration, not consultation

  • Our regenerative urban strategies and engagement solutions position your project for enduring success

Village Well acknowledges and celebrates the Traditional Custodians of the lands, waterways, seas and skies that together make up the places on which we live, work, learn and play. We recognise their role as great contributors to the care and maintenance of place and value their ongoing deep care and knowledge of Country that continues to be passed on through generations.

 

As placemakers, we understand the impact that disconnecting from Country can have, and acknowledge the consequences of colonisation on the oldest living culture in the world. We are committed to support the continued wisdom and practices of First Nations Peoples, and strive to work collaboratively to nourish Country - our plants, animals, communities, neighbourhoods, cities and the planet - for now and into the future.
