More about Nightingale 2.0

Nightingale 2.0 is a low energy mixed-use apartment and retail building located directly adjacent to a suburban railway platform in the inner Melbourne suburb of Fairfield. Designed by Six Degrees Architects, and delivered as a collaboration between HIP V. HYPE and Six Degrees, in accordance with the principles of Nightingale Housing. 

Located on a small 500sqM slither of land previously owned by the State rail authority, the project demonstrates the potential for unutilised yet well-located state land to be responsibly re- purposed. 

The project is an all-electric, very low energy building containing 20 apartments, 3 retail spaces, shared communal amenity and no car parking. The project is an alternative model for development which seeks to provide high quality, environmentally sustainable housing at prices more accessible to people who are increasingly priced out of the housing market in locations close to jobs and essential amenity. 

The project demonstrates that a deeply collaborative approach to the procurement of a multi-residential building can enable the formation of a more cohesive community within the building. It also shows that the building itself can exists more cohesively within the local neighbourhood.
