With only 27 apartments, Nightingale Evergreen is the smallest building in the Village and boasts a direct connection to Bulleke-bek Park on West Street.

Textured concrete external walls define the lower floors of the building, for seasonal vegetation to adorn. Upper floors are expressed by a deep green metal skin with steel framing members supporting balconies open to the sky. At ground level verdant plantings line the building’s colonnade entry, which is open-air and washed in afternoon sun. The entry leads to a central garden, and an open-air stair connecting the two halves of the building, allowing generous light and ventilation through the centre and all habitable rooms.

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

Meet a resident

I’m just so blessed, I feel like I’ve been given a second chance in life. It’s really hard out there if things go wrong. And if you’re aged, I think it’s even harder.
