Nightingale Marrickville wins two more industry awards 

9 Jul, 2024

Nightingale Marrickville has had the honour of being awarded another two design and development awards in the last few weeks. 

On 27 June, Dan Dwyer, David Tolman and Sam Buckerfield attended an awards night with Urban Taskforce and were honoured to accept the award for the winner of Urban Taskforce Australia’s Affordable Development Award. 

Chair of the DEA Judging Panel, Chris Johnson AM made the following comments about the project: 

“This build-to-rent project is a comfortable 6 stories designed by SJB architects.  The development is aimed at the affordable end of the market with rents reduced to 80% of the market rate of the area. Homes are allocated through a ballot system. The architecture includes brick arches in its podium to give an interesting presentation to the street.” 

A week later, SJB Architects, our partner in the build, attended the NSW Architecture Awards which celebrates excellence in design, placemaking and sustainability. The 2024 awards named the best new residential, commercial and public buildings. 

We are pleased to say that Nightingale Marrickville received the Premier’s Prize, Commendation for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing.  

“It was a great thrill to accept the award with the team and hear the very encouraging words from Premier Minns and Minister Scully.” said Gabby Suhr from SJB. 

For our first foray into the Affordable Housing sector, these awards are very encouraging and show the strength and importance of partnership to create spaces of belonging and places that feel like home for people while meeting a significant need within our community.
