The Nightingale Housing project in Melbourne has captured the imagination since its inception in 2014. Founder, Jeremy Mcleoad, suggests an architecture of reduction, which provides moderation of these housing models. Using architecture as a catalyst to engage and generate interaction, Nightingale supports communication and community.
Jeremy also explains how they side-stepped the property developer control of design and put it back in the hands of architects. Through a triple bottom line approach – financial return, sustainable and liveable, Jeremy’s vision provides a universal design approach to the housing product.
