Sustainable Homes: The Eco-dome Home
Since R. Buckminster Fuller first envisioned the geodesic dome structure, he sought out a plan to house an ever-growing human population in strong, affordable, and sustainable housing alternatives.
At Domespaces, we like to call these sustainable housing options eco-dome homes. Eco-dome homes are incredibly strong and can withstand heavy snowfall, strong winds, and even earthquakes.
Coupled with their strength, eco-dome homes are built with a sustainable housing design, making them efficient and eco-friendly. The dome’s shape offers a low area to volume ratio for starters, which means you get a lot of living space without a large area footprint. The eco-dome home’s shape also allows for natural airflow throughout the structure, meaning they require less energy to heat or cool as air can circulate freely. Additionally, the eco-dome’s structure holds less surface area than other housing alternatives, which reduces heat and cold exposure to the outside of the dome, minimizing its effects on the inside.
Domespace’s eco-dome homes are the definition of doing the MOST with less. Not only does the shape of our eco-dome homes create a more energy-efficient living environment, the domes themselves require significantly less material than alternative houses. Dating back to 1970, the American Institute of Architects claimed R. Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome design to be the “the strongest, lightest and most efficient means of enclosing space yet known to man.”
Here at Domespaces, we take pride in advancing R. Buckminster Fuller’s work and creating top-quality, reliable eco-dome homes for our customers. We strive to provide safe, efficient, sustainable, and competitively affordable alternative housing solutions for those looking to switch to an environmentally friendly dome home.
