Christie Walk
Ecological CoHousing Project

Location: City of Adelaide, SA    next page

The project was designed to test and demonstrate the processes, plans and principles contained in the ecological city vision of Urban Ecology Australia (UEA), a non-profit association for environmental education. It was conceived as a piece of future ecocity.

The design brief was based on energy efficiency, the use of renewables and a high overall ecological performance allied to user-participation in the design and development process. It was intended to set the parameters for a project able to demonstrate both the physical and organisational aspects of community and ecological development.
