Austin Maynard Architects’ ParkLife overlooks Bulleke-bek Park to the north, freely accessible from Duckett Street at the south via a breezy walkway through the building’s ground floor. This development is one of the most sustainable in Australia with a NatHERS rating of 9.1 stars. The distinctive building exterior is clad in highly insulated white steel, with hooks, grilles and rods allowing vegetation to proliferate. Intentional communal spaces include spacious outdoor areas between apartments on each level, and a rooftop featuring a community amphitheatre with city views and productive gardens.

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