Affordable and Sustainable Housing that Builds Community – Nightingale 1.0 by Breathe Architecture

Jeremy McLeod, director of Breathe Architecture and Managing Director of Nightingale Housing, explains the Nightingale Model simply as ‘it’s designed to deliver affordable and sustainable housing that builds community.’ Yet this straightforward explanation belives the vision, hard work and creative thinking of those behind Nightingale Housing, an organisation that is reinventing the fundamentals of housing in Australia.

The individual apartments are critical to the inhabitants’ quality of life and sense of community. While typical apartments are often cramped and dark, the Nightingale 1.0 interiors’ carefully considered design makes an enormous difference to the experience of apartment living through consideration of creating affordable and sustainable housing that builds community.

Nightingale 1.0 is a true example of architecture created for the purpose of tending to its inhabitants – in the common spaces encouraging yet not forcing social interaction, and in the apartments creating beautiful, sustainable, comfortable and functional spaces that respond to the residents’ individual needs and lives.
