EHDO Architecture has been awarded a license to design the first Nightingale Housing project in WA.
The mixed-use development will be built in a semi-industrial area on Wood Street in Freemantle and will be the first project developed using the innovative Nightingale investor model outside of its state-of-origin, Victoria.
Twelve apartments, 250sqm of commercial space, and a large communal area on the roof are scheduled for the site which is 10 minutes walking distance to Fremantle CBD.
The Nightingale website says that he project will include a substantial photovoltaic array; charge points in all car bays; water-wise gardens and water storage; and the use of sustainable building materials and passive solar design principles.
EHDO also aims to make the apartments as attractive as possible to families through clever integration of extensive gardens and landscape. It'll also explore how the body corporate can further reduce running costs to the tenants by being an active, income-generating entity.
Three Nightingale projects are currently under construction in Victoria including one each from Breathe Architecture, Austin Maynard and Six Degrees Architects. Projects from Guymer Bailey and Clare Cousins are also in the design phase.
