Nightingale Leftfield by Kennedy Nolan is the Village’s red brick address on Duckett Street. Entry is via the lofty, sheltered pedestrian access along the western edge of the building, raised and protected from the Upfield bike path by lush planting. Beyond the front door is  a garden court filled with colourful light from the west, offering access to the building’s open air staircase. The building encourages residents to take the stair and provides relaxed spaces for chance encounters with neighbours and friends.⁣

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

For us, living here is not just about the building, it’s about all the wonderful people we’ve met across The Village.
