Who is Village Well?

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

 

Our Melbourne & Sydney teams have 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
