Green eco-friendly custom homes and interiors by Solaleya
Designer Patrick Marsilli proposes a revolutionary solar structure Passive solar energy: Rotate your house away from the sun in summer to cool down and towards the sun in winter to warm up (on demand or automated rotation system). Optional Integrated solar panels to store energy as well as several possible ecological options for better energy efficiency. Structural strength: Anti-cyclonic Its aerodynamic form has proven resists without any damage to a wind up to 240km/hour (Taiwan Domespace resisted Cyclone Tim in 1994 and some others without deterioration). Anti-seismic The seismic ray that would make a 10 story building collapse turns around the ring gear of fixation without finding any perpendicularity. Every Domespace is erected over an elastomeric belt that works as a "silencer block"... like a piece of rubber that cushion vibrations. Arches are solidly anchored to a steel ring gear itself fixed to a pedestal made of reinforced concrete. Unparalleled structural integrity Pleasant habitat:

Build your own Bamboo Domes This is page 95 of "Domebook Two", a book that was published in the 70's and is very hard to find. It was written by Pacific Domes (not the same as Pacific Domes), and I was able to find it at the local library. Bamboo grows fast, is free material for a dome framework. It might be possible to suspend a tent skin or mosquito netting inside, or pull a stretch cloth over the outside and shoot foam. Tools: a pocket knife and string. 100' Geodesic Dome for Aquaponics The bigger a dome gets, the better it's energy efficiency. Thank you for viewing my entry. I will post Instructables for all of the different aspects of the project as we complete them. When I am asked about building an aquaponics center that has an area of almost 8,000 square feet, I always have the same answer. With domes, bigger is better.

Monolithic Homes When it comes to homes, Monolithic does not believe in one size or one style fits all. Your Monolithic Dome home can be everything you need and everything you want in the home of your dreams. It can be small and cozy or spacious and luxurious; one-storied or multistoried; at ground level, totally underground or earth-bermed; built in virtually any location and environment. Flexibility is the key idea behind our home designs. The interior of your Monolithic Dome home can be partitioned into rooms or areas that fit your needs and wants.

Conduit Dome Tips Conduit, or EMT seems to be the material of choice for domes at Burning Man. Conduit is easy to work with, relatively inexpensive, and plated so painting isn't necessary. This page will provide tips for making conduit framed domes. STEP 1: Deciding on a frequency The first thing you need to do is figure out what type of dome you want to build. If this is your first dome, the 2 or 3 frequency domes are recommended. How to Build a Monolithic Dome Monolithic Domes are constructed following a patented method that requires a tough, inflatable Airform, steel-reinforced concrete and a polyurethane foam insulation. Each of these ingredients is used in a technologically specific way. Step One: The Monolithic Dome starts as a concrete ring foundation, reinforced with steel rebar.

The Monolithic Dome Monolithic Domes are constructed following a method that requires a tough, inflatable Airform, steel-reinforced concrete and a polyurethane foam insulation. Each of these ingredients is used in a technologically specific way. Our domes can be designed to fit any architectural need: homes, cabins, churches, schools, gymnasiums, arenas and stadiums, bulk storages, landlord dwellings and various other privately or publicly owned facilities. Monolithic Domes meet FEMA standards for providing near-absolute protection and have a proven ability to survive tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, most manmade disasters, fire, termites and rot.

Eco-Dome: Moon Cocoon - Cal-Earth Building Designs The Eco-Dome is a small home design of approximately 400 square feet (40 sq. meters) interior space. It consists of a large central dome, surrounded by four smaller niches and a wind-scoop, in a clover leaf pattern. Learning and building an Eco-Dome is the next stage after building a small emergency shelter and provides hands-on learning experience in the essential aspects of Superadobe construction. It's small size of approximately 400 square feet (interior space), makes it a manageable structure for the first time owner builder. A Home In Massachusetts Designed For River And Ocean Views Hammer Architects have completed the Long Dune Residence, a home designed to take advantage of the views of the ocean and the Pamet River in Truro, Massachusetts. From the architects Perched on a coastal bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this new residence is designed to additionally afford views of the Pamet River and a fresh water pond. The entry side of the house appears very solid with its thick super-insulated wood clad walls and narrow strip windows enclosing the bathrooms, outdoor showers, stair, and laundry room.

Frameless Geodesic Dome What is it? It’s a frameless geodesic dome designed to be easy to fabricate and build. It is 18 feet wide at the widest point and about 13 feet tall. It feels very spacious for it’s 209 square foot floor. Build a homemade geodesic dome A Geodesic Dome Some years ago I built a geodesic dome out of ½ inch galvanized steel electrical conduit, to serve as an aviary for chickens and small parrots. I wrote a computer program to calculate the proper lengths of steel tubing, and draw the diagram shown below: The dome is made from three different lengths of tubing. I used colored stickers on the tubes to mark the different lengths -- red for the long ones, violet for the medium lengths, and green for the short ones.

Shane Schneck's Bollard light is four lamps in one Northmodern 2015: American designer Shane Schneck has created a silicone lamp for Danish brand Menu that can be used in four different positions. Diffused light comes from the circular end of the conical Bollard light, designed for Menu by Shane Schneck. "The form of a lamp is the result of a desire to re-imagine the typical pendant, made possible by adapting LED technology and high-density silicone," said Schneck, whose studio Office for Design is based in Stockholm.
