International recognition for Nightingale Village

Nov 29, 2023

Nightingale Village has been awarded two prestigious Dezeen Awards. Congratulations to all involved for taking home the Sustainable Building of the Year and Housing Project of the Year awards.

From the sustainability jury: "Nightingale Village provides a replicable, market-viable model for how new housing can benefit both people and planet. It offers affordable homes in the face of a housing crisis while reducing inhabitant's reliance on fossil fuels, cutting out all need for natural gas and even attaining special permission to provide only 20 parking spaces for more than 200 homes – a radical decision in its suburban Australian context."

From the housing project jury: "This project exemplifies a new approach to housing, with a focus on society, community and wellbeing. With an emphasis on cooperative design to address the challenges of housing in our cities, the project presents different typologies for different types of people and families living together. The collaboration of the six architects on the project has added richness to the variety of materials and spaces, which are both generous and humane."

Nightingale Village is a collaboration between architecture architecture, Austin Maynard Architects, Breathe, Clare Cousins Architects, Hayball and Kennedy Nolan.
