Nightingale design

Nightingale Housing exists to create housing for people, not for profit. Its mission is to improve the Australian housing market through the creation of socially, economically and environmentally sustainable medium density homes.

With the Australian housing market in crisis, Nightingale Housing has challenged the traditional developer model. There is no marketing, no real estate agent and no hidden profit margin.

Unlike a traditional developer who prioritises profit, Nightingale Housing works with exceptional architects, builders and values-aligned commercial tenants to deliver at-cost housing. Nightingale 1 is the first carbon neutral multi-residential building in Australia.

Nightingale achieves this without sacrifice to comfort or excellence in design. The project utilises a raw material palette and minimal design approach, from the exposed utilities on the ground floor lobby to the generous shared garden on the rooftop.
