Architecture architecture is currently working in collaboration with Breathe Architecture on the design and delivery of a Nightingale co-housing development
for Urban Coup.
Urban Coup are a deliberative housing community who aim to live together in more socially integrated ways. Such communities are typically formed in rural areas and on the urban fringes where developments have room to sprawl across the earth. Constructed in the inner-north of Melbourne, close to services and public transport, Urban Coup will be the first vertical community of its kind in Australia.
Beyond the scope of a typical housing development, the Urban Coup development will include communal kitchen and dining facilities, workshop spaces, a yoga room, music room and productive rooftop gardens.
Architecture architecture have worked extensively with the future residents of Urban Coup—a client base of 50—running regular workshops and surveys to ensure the design supports the community lifestyle they desire. This is an incredibly exciting project for all involved.
