What is the Nightingale Village?
The Nightingale Village is a future precinct on Duckett Street in Brunswick. The Village is a collection of six neighbouring buildings, each designed by a different award-winning architect using the social, environmental and financial sustainability principles of the Nightingale model. These principles will be embedded in every building, and across the street. While each building has its own investors and is its own financial entity led by the architect, the adjacency of the developments offers up a unique chance to co-operate and align with each other to achieve better outcomes across the site for investors, future residents, retailers and at the street level.
It’s not an urban experiment, but a chance to change the way housing is built on a wider scale and to create smart, deliberate and liveable density. There's never been anything else like it before.
Location / Duckett Street, Brunswick
Status / Balloted and awaiting construction
Apartments / 199

Note: the sixth building, Urban Coup, will be delivered with the assistance of Nightingale Housing under a co-housing model for a pre-existing resident community. As such, there is no microsite for Urban Coup as it was not sold to the general public. The building is collaboratively designed by Architecture Architecture and Breathe Architecture and will include two ground floor retail tenancies.
