Our first South Australian project, Nightingale Bowden is in one of Adelaide’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. Situated on a unique island site, the building overlooks the street to the south and accesses sunlight from the north. Design elements like a sawtooth profile peeking out above the roofline, and copper motifs across the façade, subtly acknowledge Bowden’s industrial past. Breathe created a visual separation between the two halves of the building by incorporating colour variations into the fluted profile. One half of the facade is natural grey and the other will gradually seep to the green colour of copper patina.

We are proud to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the Traditional Custodians of the land upon which Nightingale Bowden stands. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

Meet a resident

It was always my dream as a child to own an apartment, but on a single income I thought a Bowden apartment was out of my reach. Someone told me to google ‘Nightingale Housing’, and everything that was on the Nightingale website hit me right in my values.
