The Green Magic Homes are composed of prefabricatedvaulted panels manufactured with composite laminate materials, confined by walls in reinforced soil. The structure is easy to assemble and features perforated flaps in order to screw and seal the components together.

Because of this efficient technology, the designs can be adapted to any type of topography and customized to fit individual needs. The good thing is customers can start small and purchase panels which would be sufficient to build a few modulesand then expand as they go. It takes only three people to assemble the structure in three days, with no special skills or heavy equipment.
The technology draws from various methods of earth construction and stabilization, such as superadobe and geotextiles. Composite ducts and channels for electrical wiring and water pipes as well as mechanical ventilation ducts can be added to the shell at any point. The trick with this type of construction is to achieve adequate ventilation and water-proofing, which Green Magic Homes address in a new way by creating strong, modular, waterproof inner shells that structurally collaborate with the earth.
