Earth Block Architecture and Construction
Urban Ecology’s foray into architecture results from our passion for design and our drive for building sustainable businesses. We achieve this goal by manufacturing Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEB) or Mud Bricks and supplying them to local architects. Our own construction projects use CSEB too, and are also based on the principles of sustainable architecture. While simplicity and modernity form the crux of our design, we tie these in with our knowhow of age-old, traditional earthen architecture to create harmony between our structures and their surrounding environment.
We offer standardized designs for a studio, 1 BHK and 2 BHK, with options for color.
We use CSEB in construction thereby minimizing our (and your) carbon footprint.
Well-planned project timelines prevent unnecessary delays, and provide speedy delivery.
Opt into our rainwater harvesting system, permaculture offering, and bamboo furniture options.
Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEB) are blocks of building material produced by compressing moistened, prepared soil in a press with the addition of 5-10% of a stabilizer like cement or lime. This type of mudbrick facilitates building higher with thinner walls, which have a much better compressive strength and water resistance.
In comparison to country fired bricks, CSEB has an embodied energy that is 10.7 times less, and carbon emissions that are 12.5 times less. Therefore, energy consumed by all of the processes associated with manufacturing, transporting, and utilizing CSEB is significantly low.

Our goal is to showcase and offer a holistic way of living. We use Urban Permaculture techniques to incorporate within our design of your plot(s) – indigenous food plants (fruit trees, vegetables, and herbs), other native plants, other life forms and water features. This setup is designed to help residents pursue “living off the land” with fresh, home-grown, organic produce. While our permaculture techniques are specific to the context of community living (shared or adjoining plots), they can also be adapted to an individual space.
“Permaculture creates sustainable ways of living using ecologically harmonious and productive systems to everyone’s benefit. About as old as our planet itself, permaculture focuses on ‘using’ the earth for agriculture, rather than fighting against it. This means utilizing organic material, minimizing resource usage and realizing the many uses of a single resource.”
