Located at the heart of the Village, CRT+YRD by Hayball is designed from the inside out. A thoughtfully landscaped central courtyard gives the building its name, and offers all apartments a dual aspect, providing abundant lighting and passive ventilation.

Hayball’s design uses natural and robust materials celebrating identity and longevity as well as championing lower long-term maintenance. Where natural materials are used their inherent materiality is celebrated, including any natural imperfections, which ultimately contribute to the unique character of each space.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the land upon which Nightingale CRT+YRD stands. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters, and culture.

Meet a resident

We had our one-year anniversary recently. We all got together for a day-long party which began at midday on the ground floor, and every hour we'd go up one flight of stairs to a new host. It was a lovely occasion with everyone coming together.
