As part of the 2017 UQ Architecture lecture series at the State Library of Queensland in partnership with the Asia Pacific Design Library, Gary Swanepoel was fortunate to attend the discussion about sustainable design and affordable housing and its impact in Melbourne. A sensitive topic currently facing local Noosa residents with the roll out of Noosa's new town plan.

Jeremy is the founding Director of Breathe Architecture, a team of dedicated architects that have built a reputation for delivering high-quality design and sustainable architecture. Breathe Architecture has been focusing on sustainable urbanisation and in particular, have been investigating how to deliver more affordable urban housing to Melbournians. Breathe were the instigators of The Commons housing project in Brunswick and are collaborating with other Melbourne architects to deliver the Nightingale Model. Nightingale is intended to be an open source-housing model, led by architects. Jeremy believes that architects, through collaboration, can drive real positive change.

 

NIGHTINGALE IS AN ATTEMPT TO REBALANCE THE SCALES, TO TAKE THE KEYS OF THE CITY BACK FROM THOSE WHO SHOULD NEVER HAD THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.

 

Junction 2 in collaboration with a collection of local architects led by Andrew Bock, with permission from Design Online, will be streaming the live recording of the session at the Junction 2 coworking space in Noosa's very own CBD.

The hope is this will be the first in a series of meetups which will lead to an open discussion about what role local designers should play in influencing the direction of Noosa development. How can Noosa create a framework that provides opportunities for new and emerging designers to lead progressive approaches to local development, encouraging sustainability with respect to our unique Noosa lifestyle, and deliver affordable well-designed housing to Noosa residents.

Liam Wallis from Hip vs Hype will be attending to share his experience with the projects. Involved with Nightingale 1.0, the Nightingale Model's prototype building, the first of the Nightingales. This project aims to deliver 20 quality homes with an average star rating of 8.2 stars, a shared 18Kw solar array and a lush rooftop garden.

 

Hip vs Hype have now moved on to the next Nightingale apartment complex, to be created using the triple-bottom-line Nightingale Model. It will have an eight-star design and fossil-fuel-free operation that is nationally significant, according to the project team. It will exist as a beacon to developers to show there is a market of purchasers chasing an alternative development outcome.

The proposed zero-car development at 72a Station Street, Fairfield, in Melbourne’s inner north, has been submitted to the City of Darebin for approval. Six Degrees architects is leading the project with support from entrepreneurial firm HIP V. HYPE Sustainability as development manager.
