Futuristic Vision of Sustainable Living – Easy Domes Becoming an Easy Choice

The brainchild of Danish Architect Kari Thomsen and Engineer Ole Vanggaard, Easy Domes are a contemporary prefab home design with two ambitions – easy assembly and low energy. One short day can yield this totally functional and ultimately unique house. Originally built in 1992 for the Greenland Society of The Faroah Islands, Easy Domes are now available in a variety of configurations that include the 160-ft. Nature Dome, the 250-ft. Tuft Dome (pictured), the Duo Dome and Family Houses ranging from 500 to 2,200 ft., and the Cultural Dome at 1,000 ft. Composed of a single dome or a series, Easy Domes are all founded on the “icosahedron” shape, a collection hexagonal panels arranged to offer a layout maximizing interior living space. This futuristic design offers does not compromise the comforts of home, offering a two-storey layout complete with a living room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. Another modern twist on the traditional is that these homes are built using eco-friendly materials and methods. The design is vented on the exterior, and insulated with wood and flax. A green roof tops off these homes, complemented by solar roof panels, a wind turbine and other methods to harvest alternative forms of energy.
