We are delighted to share that Dunlop Avenue and Nightingale Village have been announced as Finalists in the Architectural Design category of the Victorian Premier’s Design Awards in the Architectural Design category. Both of these projects reflect our ongoing support for Victorian communities, with housing choices that elevate their standard of living with sustainable, socially conscious design.
Dunlop Avenue in Ascot Vale is one of the first projects to be completed under the Big Housing Build and serves as an exemplary model for the future of social and affordable housing in Victoria. The strong collaboration between Homes Victoria, the broader consultant team, including Tract (Landscape Architects), and Built (Builder) was a key factor in accomplishing the project vision. Together, we exceeded the design brief by capitalising on the site’s unique attributes and the opportunities to provide a welcoming and connected place with unique character.
“Dunlop Avenue provides 200 social and affordable homes and reflects a vision for an integrated, safe and accessible community.” – Victorian Premier’s Design Awards.

Nightingale Village is a zero-gas residential precinct in Brunswick, Victoria created by six leading Australian architecture firms. The precinct was built under the Nightingale Housing model with Housing Choices Australia, and aims to promote communal living while also minimising the environmental impacts of housing construction.
“This major collaborative project sets a new standard for sustainable, community-centred design at precinct scale.” – Victorian Premier’s Design Awards.
