A ‘carbon neutral’ classroom.

The Christies Beach Environmental Learning Centre operates in a practical demonstration for young students – our future scientists and conservationist.

The building is constructed with a range of materials and systems including rammed earth, straw bale, & ‘reverse veneer’ walls; trombe walls; earth pipes; efficient heat pump heating and cooling; a wind turbine; and photovoltaic panels.

Internal spaces are visually, physically and energetically connected with outdoors, and all aspects of the building relate directly w ith its existing surrounds, which include native and food gardens, and the Yunggullungalla medicinal garden.
