IN BRIEF: Kennedy Nolan’s apartments in the Nightingale Village in Melbourne’s Brunswick will be up next for the ballot in the sustainable housing model that’s rewritten the rules for how housing can be developed in Australia.
The apartment building is one of seven in the village precinct created by a group of architects that decided to scale up the Nightingale model and bought the entirety of Duckett Street for the project.
The project includes two separate garden areas, one a “sky garden” with dense vegetation to relax in and another with shared facilities such as communal dining, among other environmental and social sustainability features as per the Nightingale model requirements.
The building is next to the recently balloted Nightingale CRT+YRD by Hayball. The ballot for Breathe Architect’s Sky House is now closed.
An information session on the project will be held on 10 April.
