About Our Domes
OUR GEODESIC GLAMPING DOMES IN A NUTSHELL
Why rough it out in nature, when you can enjoy a 360° view of your surroundings in supreme comfort? Our thoughts exactly.
That’s why our domes are durable, safe, earthquake-, wind-, water- and snow-resistant, modern and seamlessly fit into the landscape, while offering its inhabitants loads of space, luxury and tranquility.
Our domes are also eco-conscious and versatile: ideal as storage, accommodation, a store and a greenhouse if glamping isn’t quite your style.
But if glamping is your thing, then do it the responsible way with us! Because we’re passionate about nature preservation and having heaps of fun in the great outdoors too.
BENEFITS OF GLAMPING
Glamping has become all the rage, especially due to the fact that you can enjoy nature while sleeping on a comfortable full size bed, stargaze from a warm sofa and have your morning showers under the open skies.
And who wouldn't want that?
WHAT IS A GLAMPING GEODESIC DOME?
A geodesic dome is a multi-purpose structure that easily transforms into an eco-living pod, greenhouse, craft or yoga studio, pop up street cafe and more.
Available in different sizes, our domes flaunt different features like panoramic bay windows, skylights, multiple entrances and are fully customizable to suit your specific needs as well.
They’re also easy to assemble and dismantle without any major equipment needed (unless you go with a 30-32 ft dome, of course - then renting a small crane is the way to go), allowing for great mobility and high utilization at numerous locations.
And you can even connect your dome to water and electricity - because why not, right?
WHO NEEDS GLAMPING DOMES?
Everyone who loves nature. Our portable domes are also stellar for those in need of living, storage or growing space.
LIVING SPACE: Our domes can be used as living quarters, eco-tourism destination camping suites, fishing and hunting seasonal huts, base camps or relief shelters.
BUSINESS SPACE: Great for events, fairs, concerts, festivals, receptions, pop-up cafes, shops, studios, storage or projection domes (360° cinema).
ADVERTISING SPACE: Ideal for conferences, promotions, product launches, sports events or political rallies.
GROWING SPACE: Suitable to be used as a greenhouse or winter orchard.
OTHER: Our domes are also used by owners of hotels, camping sites, beach resorts, vineyards, B&B’s, ski resorts, golf resorts and schools.
BENEFITS OF A GLAMPING DOME
In some places, you don’t even need a building permit to install a glamping dome tent. Why - because they are considered “temporary / semi-permanent” structures and the stress level to set them up is minimal.
As most of our glamping domes are easy to transport, they can be placed in nearly any location, be it on rocks, sand or dirt ... as long as it’s level. We do however recommend building a deck or making a concrete pad, if you plan to leave them in one place over a long period of time.
WHAT ARE GLAMPING DOMES MADE OF?
Our glamping dome frames are made from robust hot dip galvanized steel, constructed on the idea of high strength-to-weight ratio.
What on earth is hot dip galvanized steel though? Great question - it’s steel that is treated by the special process of submerging metal parts into molten pure zinc baths (98% pure zinc at 830°F) that allows for unprecedented rust protection and durability, even under extreme conditions of high humidity and water. Incredible.
Our domes are also relatively lightweight and self-supporting, consisting of a frame and a membrane cover. The membrane is made of high durability double PVC coated polyester that’s water-resistant, UV-resistant and windproof for winds up to 75 mph. The membrane deters dust and dirt, and can be washed with a pressure washer gun too.
To help put indecisive and sleepless nights to rest, we’ve added a Sample Kit to our store. Naturally we won’t be sending a sample dome, but we will send sample materials to help make your shopping experience with us a breeze.
And need we say, this option is extremely popular among hospitality investors and developers too!
LET’S TALK SIZES
Our domes come in six different sizes that are specifically tailored to your needs.
These include 16ft (5m) to 32ft (10m) of diameter (with a floor area footage of 210ft to 800ft).
The best model for you depends on the kind of activity you want to engage in. Whether it’s an intimate space for a couple, or a set of rooms to accommodate a reasonable number of people.

HOW SAFE ARE OUR GLAMPING DOMES?
They were originally planned to be used by disaster relief and military services - fascinating - we know. Even more fascinating - in 1954 the U.S. Marines experimented with helicopter-deliverable geodesic domes!
Fast-forward to 1977, a geodesic dome was also built in Antarctica to provide shelter and protect scientific assets from snow and harsh winds. It was designed to last 10 to 15 years max in the South Pole’s harsh weather conditions. However, brace yourselves, the structure was only dismantled in 2008, after a whopping 31 years of service!
But enough about then and more about the now - our domes are made using only the best of the best material and their geodesic shape makes them safer in high winds and even earthquakes than conventional structures.
So put your mind at ease and know the best form of engineering and design goes into our domes’ creation to help ensure the highest level of safety and compliance with standard procedures.
GLAMPING DOMES VS. EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS
Our domes are built to provide safe shelter in any climatic condition, meaning they can be used all year round too if properly equipped.
Remember, these geodesic domes are made from high value materials resistant to high winds, heavy snows and even earthquakes.
HIGH WINDS: Each glamping dome kit has an anchorage system allowing the structure to be safely attached to the surface and help endure the most violent of storms.
HEAVY SNOW: Our domes are treated in a very specific way to help guarantee their safety and ensure their structure holds. The geodesic shape of domes itself is very effective in shedding the snow off its surface with the help of wind. Large snow accumulations on a dome surface are rare and require very special conditions: wet, sticky snow with zero wind. It’s also advised to keep the interior of the dome heated above 10°C (50°F) to help prevent snow residue from packing on the pounds during the snowfall and at least 6 hours after it stops.
CAN THE GLAMPING DOMES BE SELF-CONFIGURED?
YES. Our glamping dome packages can be customized to your required needs - no matter the size you want.
Simply add your specific requirements after booking the dome online. Please contact us if you require a dome size that is outside our standard offer or any concerns with additional accessories .
There are several optional accessories and kits available to help boost your glamping dome experience - like a solar-powered exhaust fan for the improvement of air-circulation in humid conditions, wood-burning stove and chimney package for heating to an insulation kit.
But what’s more - we now sell domes covers separately - how exciting is that? Meaning if your cover has become dysfunctional, ripped or discolored - you don’t have to buy an entirely new dome. This option also provides you with the choice to purchase a cover to have as a spare on standby, which is just never ever a bad idea.
And since we’re selling the dome cover separately, we thought, why not sell the steel frame separately too? Livestock owners and domesticated animal enthusiasts may just find this option a dream come true. As just as a side note - large size frames make great pens or aviaries - simply add the wire mesh …
WHY ARE GEODESIC GLAMPING DOMES BETTER THAN CONVENTIONAL TENTS?
1. You can turn your dome to a home away from home.
2. They’re durable and last WAY longer than your classic tent.
3. They can withstand extreme weather conditions that tents can’t.
4. They’re uber grand, a luxury you simply can’t obtain from a tent.
