We transform neighbourhoods, from the ground up.

Local Councils, leading edge property developers and the social sector are thinking differently about the role of place in shaping communities that thrive. Knowing how to deliver places with enduring social and economic benefit is the true challenge.

CoDesign Studio is a globally recognized, purpose driven placemaking and activation consultancy. We specialize in facilitation of locally-led processes to leverage place strengths and realise potential.

Our award-winning collaborative city making framework has been road tested in over 120 neighbourhoods to turn developments, public spaces, mainstreets and activity centres into places that people love and feel connected to.

We pride ourselves on delivering seriously fun, creative engagement to help build a community support base and facilitate outcomes that stick.

Our flagship community offering, The Neighbourhood Project, is Australia’s largest community-led placemaking program, and has been embraced by urban and regional Councils Australia-wide.

CoDesign Studio is a registered social enterprise. We work nationally, with offices in Melbourne and Brisbane.
