Founded in 2001 by Design Director Jeremy McLeod and Tamara Veltre, Breathe has a reputation for delivering exceptional solutions. 

We’ve remained at the forefront of sustainable design over the last 20 years by rigorously pursuing design that’s beautiful, seemingly effortless, and environmentally positive.

Breathe were the instigators of Nightingale Housing in collaboration with six of Melbourne’s best architecture firms. Nightingale Housing provides apartments that are socially, financially and environmentally sustainable, and reflects our innate ability to think laterally and productively as we deliver on our practice purpose.
