The Nightingale Model

What is the Nightingale Model?


Nightingale Housing believes that homes should be built for people, not profit, and enable individual and collective well-being through environmental, financial and social sustainability.

Our cities and communities deserve beautiful, affordable, well-built homes – apartments designed for real life. Nightingale Housing builds homes for and with the people who intend to live in them.

Using the innovative Nightingale Model, Nightingale Housing supports the creation of these homes, reorienting the market to focus on delivering good outcomes for owner-occupiers by building multi-residential housing that are socially, environmentally and financially sustainable.

The Nightingale Model

Apartments built under the Nightingale model reestablish agency for purchasers and communities in the process of designing, building and buying homes.

This model is backed by an innovative financial model that delivers homes at cost (including builders profit and consultant fees) to purchasers, with any savings given back to the residents.

The Nightingale Model mandates better standards of design. This model is licensed to Australia’s leading architects through a considered approval process, and the architect’s then build to higher standards of space, materiality and thermal energy.
