Small Earth design and build rammed earth structures using technology devised by Iranian Cal-Earth architect Nader Khalili. Known as SuperAdobe this form of building allows for the creation of earth domes which are environmentally friendly, ecologically sound, versatile, affordable, flood, fire and earthquake resistant with brilliant sound and thermal insulation.
Small Earth provides supportive and sustainable environments for communities around the world through the creative use of elemental materials and the application of Permaculture inspired thinking.
From conception to delivery our projects leave a legacy of landmark buildings beautifully integrated into sustainable and productive landscaped spaces.

On Thursday 6th June Hounslow Heath Infants School was visited by local MP, Seema Malhotra, accompanied by the Shadow Minister for Schools, Kevin Brennan. Their visit was part of a tour of Feltham & Heston Constituency schools as an "ongoing enquiry into the challenges in our education system and how Labour will respond to them".
After listening to a presentation from the school's Headteacher, Kathryn Harper-Quinn, about the implementation of the Earth Curriculum and the positive impact Small Earth's Superadobe Earthflow Playscapes have had on the children, the MPs went on to watch outdoor lessons in the Sandpit, the Explorer's Adobe and the Superadobe Dome & Amphitheatre.
