Lt. Miller and Nightingale Brunswick East was a collaboration between Clarke Hopkins Clarke, Breathe Architecture and Openwork.

Formerly proposed as one large development, Breathe collaborated with the lead architect and developer to cleverly divide the building into two distinct communities. Fronting Nicholson St is a Nightingale building, with a communal rooftop laundry and series of commercial tenancies to activate the street.

On the quieter, residential street is Lt Miller, a set of boutique apartments built with similar sustainability principles to its neighbour.

Breathe reworked the interiors for this project, refining apartment floor plans, joinery designs and material palettes, whilst also providing sustainability consultancy.

Both of these buildings are 100% fossil fuel free in operations. An all-renewable embedded energy network provides reduced metering costs and running costs, while usage is offset through on-site solar energy production. Electricity at Lt. Miller and NGBE is supplied via an embedded network using a variety of renewable energy sources to power all apartments as well as common areas

Lobbies and corridors are naturally naturally ventilated in both buildings with plants on all levels. A 20,000 litre water tank collects rainwater and assists in irrigating the landscape surrounds. The project holds a 7.5 Star NaTHERS rating average.

We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land upon which Lt. Miller and NGBE stand. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
