The first Nightingale building in regional Victoria, Nightingale Ballarat strives to be an example of how community-centric buildings can be created in regional contexts.

Designed by Breathe Architecture, the apartment building features generous communal areas and landscaping at the ground floor level, as well as laundry facilities, productive gardens, and communal social spaces on the rooftop.

The development also provides a landscaped forecourt to Davey Street with an abutting café space, enhancing street activation. A simple palette of robust materials harmonises with nearby trees and greenery, resulting in a building that reflects its context and surrounds.

​Consisting of 27 apartments, each featuring lift slide doors from BINQ, Nightingale Ballarat is carbon-neutral in operation and achieves an average of 8+ stars NatHERS rating.
