Tiny Earthen Home Dome

Tiny Earthen Home Dome
Project led by: Jeffrey Location: Aprovecho, Cottage Grove, OR Date: September 2011 – April 2012 Reclaimed timber ceiling feature, surrounded by earthen plaster The project began with an idea: by reducing the size of a house, we actually increase the space we live in. My aim was to make a well built cabin cheaply; using material destined for the landfill as much as possible.I feel that much of the western world has become a ‘throw-away’ society. I wanted the cabin to be small, with room enough for only a bed, desk and small wood stove for winter heat. I decided on the geodesic dome as the shape for my cabin. To begin the project I constructed a nine-foot, ten sided deck using wood salvaged from a torn down shed and concrete pier blocks that were found on site. the skeleton of the dome To waterproof the roof, my plan was to use an old billboard canvass. To insulate the dome I used a combination of materials. I wrapped the outside of the dome with green vine maple to hold the plaster Related:  Examples

Dome of Visions / Kristoffer Tejlgaard + Benny Jepsen Dome of Visions / Kristoffer Tejlgaard + Benny Jepsen Architects Location Construction NCC Area 346.4 sqm Project Year 2013 Photographs Courtesy of Kristoffer Tejlgaard + Benny Jepsen The Dome's fascinating and soap bubble like look makes it an real eye-catcher, drawing both tourists and Danes from its location in the Copenhagen harbor, squeezed in between the world renowned restaurant Noma and Danish architect Nicolai Eigtved's old warehouse. It's spectacular shape brings out the contrast with the rest of the rectangular urban landscape and its delicate skeleton and glasslike facade almost makes it soar. Those who enter inside, are embraced with the warmth of a calm summer day, the smell from countless rosemary bushes, busy bumblebees and a 100 year old olive tree snuggling, sheltered from the spring-fresh wind outside. The dome at Krøyers square, named Dome of Visions, is designed by the Danish architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen and constructed by NCC.

DIY Wooden Dome Built From Pallets Designed by Gianluca Stasi of the philosophical architecture firm Ctrl + Z, this playfully artistic dome serves as more than just a backyard focal point. In collaboration with research teams looking to help alleviate the cost issues associated with making more room for expanding households in poor populations, Stasi envisioned a geodesic dome made from pallet plywood as a cheap and practicable way to add onto a house. Its scope goes beyond use as an interior room, though, with a structure suited to duty as a greenhouse, a reading nook, or even a simple shed. With a few simple measurements and plenty of pallet plywood, a team of near-novices can cut, hammer, and assemble an entirely new living space or garden shed into existence in a day or two. Made from hexagonal subsections (which in turn are made from precisely-cut pallet pieces), the addition is quite simple to assemble in a sweeping lattice structure. Ctrl + Z Arquitectura Reversible

The dome home comes to Spain | In English A Spanish architecture company is now putting the finishing touches to two circular, geodesic houses in the southern region of Murcia that will be home to a British family and a Norwegian couple. The first of the wood-built structures is in Yecla, and has a floor space of 160 square meters; the second, in the wine-growing area of Jumilla, is made up of two igloo-like constructions joined by a corridor that together provide 85 square meters of living space. “It’s a way of covering a circular space very efficiently by joining together triangular panels: this cuts down the amount of material that needs to be used, reducing building times and costs,” explain architects Pablo Carbonell and Juan Miguel Galera Miñarro from Ecoproyecta, which is building the homes. The appeal of using geodesic domes is that they cost between €500 and €1,000 per square meter The appeal of using geodesic domes is that they cost between €500 and €1,000 per square meter, and take around six months to build.

SPACEPLATES Greenhouse / N55 and Anne Romme Design group N55 teamed with architect Anne Romme to create a lightweight, easy to assemble greenhouse based on un-repeating cellular structures. The SPACEPLATES Greenhouse, South Bristol Skills Academy at City of Bristol College, is a part of a series of structures that use low tech materials to create modular greenhouses without substructure supports. The greenhouse is a group of domes linked together to form an elongated 72 square meter interior for the propose of germinating and studying plants year round. The engineering principle is based on the geometry of a sea urchin shell, whose differing scaled hexagonal cells create a strong and lightweight spherical form. The cells used for the SPACEPLATES project are made from 4mm aluminum plates bent at each corner to bolt into each other. Acrylic windows are attached by rubber gaskets.

Arquitectura de Casas: ¿La casa domo puede ser la vivienda del mañana? google_ad_region = "test" Las casas domo monolíticas parecen ser una solución arquitectónica prometedora para construir viviendas en el futuro, varias ventajas de estas estructuras están alineadas con los requerimientos que se esperan. Hay muchos ejemplos de este tipo de construcciones cupuliformes, con forma de cúpula, un gran número de ellas se puede encontrar en los Estados Unidos, debido al tamaño del mercado de las viviendas y el gran desarrollo de su industria. Para construirlas, entre distintas técnicas y materiales se emplean moldes ingeniosos y concreto proyectado con máquinas en tiempo menor al necesario para la construcción tradicional. A mayor diámetro, mejores son las posibilidades de aprovechar la altura interior en una estructura domo con entrepiso, por lo que la superficie cubierta así resulta más extensa. Estas casas son especialmente aprovechadas en donde hay espacio en el entorno, en áreas rurales, como casas de fin de semana, vacaciones, casas de playa, y cabañas.

Solar Powered EcoPods By Johan Shenton Isolated in mid-Atlantic and warmed by the Gulf Stream, the group of nine islands enjoys a benign and temperate annual climate, and a breathtaking natural beauty. Azores Islands has to deal with congestion problem due to high flux of tourist storming, which is resulting in destruction of the peace and tranquility. To resolve these problems, Tourism and Agribusiness Development Company (TADA) developed a network of low-impact solar-powered EcoPods. Designed by architect Johan Shenton, these small EcoPods are manufactured from supportable softwood and equipped with a solar-powered kit to harness sun’s energy.

На своей земле: КУПОЛЬНЫЙ ДОМ СВОИМИ РУКАМИ Фундаментом для данного купольного дома послужила коробка, выложенная из пенобетона, с проведенными в ней коммуникациями.В ходе строительства, она была армированная железными стяжками, после чего всю конструкцию залили цементом, что не только придало ей дополнительную прочность, но и позволило фундаменту быть меньше, чем сам дом, который он должен будет поддерживать. Основой всей конструкции купольного дома стало стальное кольцо. Прикрепленное к фундаменту посредством болтов, именно оно стало главным и единственным связующим элементом для С-образных балок, из которых была собрана центральная опора для крыши, а также боковые ребра будущих стен, закрепленные при помощи самой обыкновенной клепки. Когда каркас приобрел свои завершающие черты, строители приступили к обшивке дома внутренними стенами, предварительно накрыв всю конструкции пленкой на случай непредвиденного дождя. Одновременно были размечены и выделены отверстия под будущие окна.
