Why Eco-Dome Pods
One of the most thrilling nature experiences you’ll ever have is to spend time at a ski resort amidst breath-taking views of the surrounding country-side. To add to this enriching life experience eco-dome pods have become quite-the-thing at ski resorts and remote ski destinations.
Due to their portability, eco-dome pods go just about anywhere on the planet ‒ all this, while exerting a light eco-footprint! Domes enclose more space and require less building materials by using the ‘doing more with less’ principle. ― credit to Buckminster Fuller, father of the modern geodesic dome.
Strewn across the majestic Swiss Alps, each resort’s ecological mission is geared towards responsible use and protection of the environment through:
- Conservation of energy, water and transportation.
- Bio-degradable products and waste recycling
- Locally employed staffing
- Fresh local cuisine and amenities and, much more
The spherical design of a geodesic pod derives its structural strength from inter-connected triangles that create a free-standing framework. The energy required to heat and cool a dome is approximately 30% less than that of a conventional building. There are no corners to obstruct the ambient airflow within the dome’s interior ‒ thus, less energy is needed to circulate air and maintain optimal temperatures.
