Christie Walk is a model ecological cohousing development in central Adelaide, Australia. It consists of 27 dwellings on a 2,000 square metres site.[1] It was designed by local architect Paul Downton and completed in 2006.[2] Its innovative aspects include energy and water saving measures, use of ethical finance and use of recycled non-toxic materials.[3]

Influences[edit]

The development has been included as a case study in the Australian Government's guide to environmentally sustainable homes[4] and inspired similar projects such as Aldinga EcoVillage and a cohousing in Canberra.[3]
