Site—55–63 Nicholson Street,
Brunswick East, Melbourne
Architects—ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects
X Breathe Architecture


Lucent Capital are the first developers to receive a Nightingale licence, in collaboration with ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects as architects and Breathe Architecture as interior designer. This was issued as Lucent showed genuine commitment to the ethos of the Nightingale model, and have signed up to produce a better building and better community for Nightingale Brunswick East. 

The team is moving away from the traditional approach to developing a multi-residential housing building with this site, using instead the Nightingale model with its values of financial, social and environmental sustainability. The building will be constructed from recycled bricks, with the vertical and rooftop gardens for which Nightingale has become known.
