NBLA collaboration with Royal Melbourne Hospital Home Lottery

Imagine purchasing a $100 raffle ticket and winning a $5 million home. On the 27th of April, one incredibly lucky ticket holder will be handed the keys to a new luxury home in Brighton East, mortgage free. Since 2005, the Royal Melbourne Hospital Foundation (RMHF) has been building and raffling luxury homes in sought-after suburbs to raise funds for healthcare advancements at the hospital.

Nathan Burkett Landscape Architecture (NBLA) is proud to have designed and built landscapes in support of this program for the past 3 years. The collaboration began when NBLA came together with RMHF, Mazzei and Webster Architecture & Interiors, as they sought to give the program new life. The goal was to further enhance the offering by building high-end architectural homes to increase lottery ticket sales and raise more funds for RMH. Since then, over $65 million has been raised to support patient care, research, and the purchase of equipment at The Royal Melbourne.

As its contribution to the cause, NBLA often provides plants free of charge, reduces its design and construction fees, and seeks discounted pricing from its suppliers. “It’s a privilege to design gardens for the RMH Home Lottery. We have freedom in the creative expression of each project while supporting a cause that is important to us and to Melbourne”, expressed Nathan Burkett, Director of NBLA.

Zeb Woodhatch, Director of Mazzei said, “Collaborating with NBLA to deliver the RMH Home Lottery landscapes has been pivotal to the ongoing success of the program. The seamless integration of house, pool and landscape delivers something uniquely special each time. We are as excited to see the garden come to life as everyone else.”

Each year the RMHF builds and raffles two homes in appealing and aspirational suburbs across Melbourne. The homes vary from lighter and brighter coastal feels to homes with a luxe and moody style. In each case, NBLA’s garden design speaks to the individual style of the home that is being built.

The RMH Home Lottery is the biggest of its kind in Victoria.

Ticket sales for the home in Arnold Rd, Brighton East close on April 21st, 2023.
