The Nightingale apartment development in Brunswick has been designed by Breathe Architecture for Nightingale Housing, a social enterprise that supports, promotes and advocates for adequate housing that fosters environmental and social sustainability and strengthens communities.
The project involved the construction of a 5 storey apartment building under a design and construct delivery method. The building contains 20 apartments, ground floor retail and rooftop communal gardens.
Nightingale’s development and financial model is unique in that it advocates connected communities and sustainability, with capped project profits and a covenant upon resales ensuring affordability is passed on.
Group Company Airport Doors supplied and installed a range of unique Bi-Fold doors for the Level 1 Apartments. The Bifold Doors match the surrounding glass façade walls. The doors open onto the external balconies and create an open plan living environment looking over the street front.
The works also included the supply and installation of a bespoke twin leaf vertical lift door on the ground floor to service the retail development, as well as a high cycle carpark roller shutter to service the rear of the building.
