What is Superadobe Architecture?

Superadobe is a form of environmentally sustainable building founded by Iranian architect, Nader Khalili.  Thought to be one of the most stable and long-lasting forms of architecture, Superadobe structures have been tested and proven to be extremely resistant to harsh weather conditions and natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods.  

Constructed with natural materials already found on most people's land, this eco-friendly system is a lower- cost and more attainable building solution.  The simplified process entails filling long, cylindrical polypropylene bags with a mixture of moistened earth, sand & gravel and laying them on top of one another in circular rows. Barbed wire is placed between each row of bags to add extra stability and tensile strength to what becomes an impressively strong monolithic structure.  Once completed, the domes are covered in plaster and painted to protect them from UV exposure and rain.

When we built Casa Domos in 2018, we wanted to combine the minimalism of earth bag building with the luxurious feel of a private jungle villa. Our custom home design is a true work of art and unlike any other property in Central America.  Whether you want to be one with nature, take a unique vacation, unplug from the world, or work from paradise, Casa Domos will be the perfect destination for you.
