Andrew Maynard is a partner producing 'well-conceived, playful and edgy' architecture in the Melbourne firm Austin Maynard Architects. He is also a founder and board member of Nightingale Housing: 'a social enterprise that supports, promotes and advocates for high-quality housing that is ecologically, socially and financially sustainable'.
Maynard was an investor in and designer of the first Nightingale project which, in addition to being community-oriented, was the first residential building in Australia to be 100% fossil fuel free and carbon neutral.
Andrew will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities offered by this type of project while staying true to the original Nightingale principles. His presentation will also focus on residential projects, ranging from stand-alone houses to medium density work.
