Six leading Australian architecture firms have collaborated to create Nightingale Village in Melbourne, Australia.
This project is a zero-gas residential precinct located five kilometres from the Melbourne central business district (CBD).
Comprising 203 homes across six buildings with eight commercial tenancies at street level, Nightingale Village sets a new standard for sustainable, community-centred design in a high-density context.
Each building was designed according to the social, environmental and financial sustainability principles of Nightingale Housing.
The Melbourne-based organisation aims to reorient the broken Australian housing market away from real estate as an investor commodity – and towards providing quality homes that support sustainable living and community connection.
