A dome is a construction that is highly reliable, stable and ergonomic. The internal space of such a structure has a maximum volume with a minimum surface area. On the one hand, it allows you to optimally organize the room, on the other hand — reduces heat loss and allows you to minimize costs for heating, air conditioning and ventilation.
Dome structures and their features
The spherical structure is not new in the world of architecture. Spherical structures have been around for at least a few hundred years. And the domed houses in their present form have been known since the 50s. The author of the concept was an American engineer Buckminster Fuller. Therefore such structures are also called Fuller’s spheres or geodesic domes.
In addition to their original appearance, domed houses have the following advantages:
- Slightness of construction, allowing it to be erected on a low-cost strip or pile foundation.
- Less material consumption than in the case of the classic shape.
- High resistance to wind and snow loads and adverse weather conditions.
- High-speed assembly / disassembly, easy to install.
Only dry technology is used in the construction of the domes, making the process faster and cheaper. So the finished frame and sawn upholstery materials can be «turned» into a structure in just a few days. Therefore dome houses are a great alternative to residential and holiday buildings — house, cottage, greenhouse, etc.
