Modern Adobe

As adobe construction has evolved so has its design potential. Clean modern lines meet green build in this fresh approach to energy efficient southwestern architecture. Preserving the old, while adding tasteful modern touches, the contemporary adobe home is a unique blend of current and past. A seamless blend into the Arizona desert, modern adobe both captivates and complements its natural surroundings. This visually pleasing architectural style is unforgettable.

Adobe bricks (mud bricks) are made of earth with a fairly high clay content and straw. If produced manually the earth mix is cast in open moulds onto the ground and then left to dry out. Adobe bricks are only sun-dried, not kiln-fired. When used for construction they are laid up into a wall using an earth mortar.
