The Nightingale Model

Nightingale supports, educates and advocates for the delivery of designer led multi-residential housing which considers at its core: social health; economic resilience; and environmental sustainability. 

  Our cities and their inhabitants deserve beautiful, well-built and well-sized homes designed for real life. At present, the market is not delivering this and as long as the current formula remains profitable, there is no incentive to raise the bar on the status quo.

We catalyse industry change through creating demonstrative projects that are fairly and transparently priced, designed for people, community and the environment. We want to redefine the meaning and quality of city life by establishing a development model that is easily replicated and benefits the communities in which they are located.

We use a deliberative development model where the purchasers (the future residents) have agency in decision-making. For too long our cities have developed based on financial interest rather than human well-being.
