Portable Dome Homes for Sale or Rent by Pacific Domes
“Because of its aerodynamic structure, geodesic domes can withstand hurricane-force winds better than any other building type.” — Pacific Domes Inc
Dome homes are the most aerodynamic, energy efficient shelter known to man. There are ongoing reports of the geodesic dome home being the only building left standing in the aftermath of a tornado, hurricane or earthquake.
What gives portable dome home it’s unparalleled strength? A geo-engineered dome house is formed by interconnected triangles that allow it to remain rigid and stable when exposed to nature’s extremes.
‘Doing More with Less’
When a dome’s diameter is doubled, it will quadruple its square footage and produce eight times its volume. A dome encloses the largest volume of interior space with the least amount of surface area, thus saving on materials and cost.
Why are Geodesic Houses Energy Efficient?
A dome home’s curved exterior surface forces air circulation up, over and around the structure. Dome studies have established that a dome’s interior has a 30% heating and cooling efficiency.
The concave interior creates a natural airflow allowing hot or cool air to flow optimally throughout the dome with the help of return air ducts. Specifically, air and energy circulate unobstructed.
Extreme wind turbulence is lessened because winds contributing to heat loss flow evenly around the dome. It acts like a giant downward reflector that concentrates interior heat, preventing radiant heat loss.
Decreased surface area requires less building materials. Exposure to cold in winter and heat in summer is reduced, due to less surface area per unit of volume.
The Sacred Geometry Behind a Dome’s Architecture
The sacred geometry behind the half-sphere design, traces its origins to ancient Vedic architecture. This ancient science is called Vaastu. A Vaastu inspired dome vibrates with cosmic energy and each dome frequency resonates with a distinct energetic quality.
Scientific research validates that a domes sacred geometry helps us integrate parts of our brain and attunes our bodily instruments to its resonance. Living in a dome will generate a conscious field which supports the evolution of the soul.
Combining the sacred geometry of R. Buckminster Fuller, Pacific Domes has been steering the future of geodesic domes since 1980 in Ashland, Oregon.
As one of the early pioneers, Pacific Domes has perfected the function and beauty of their free-standing dome house kits with little assembly time required. A prefab geodesic home can be assembled in a few hours with help from friends.
