Described as the “home of the future,” SkyDome’s dome homes are lighter than a typical home, yet study enough to withstand up to 700 kilograms of snow per square meter. The dome shape allows for even distribution of external loads. Zero internal load-bearing walls allows for complete customization of the interior plan. Each home is typically clad in solid pinewood that’s treated to protect against pests, mold, and fire. Other natural materials include the larch roof shingles and the insulation made from cork, flax, and seaweed. The spherical shape and fewer walls also help minimize heat loss and the cost of energy bills.

SkyDome offers six versions, each varying in size and price from the Sky 6, a 34-square-meter dwelling, to Sky 15, which offers 260 square meters of living space. It’s approximately 44,500 rubles ($627) per finished square meter. While two stories are the standard, the homes can be customized to include more floors, if size permits. The houses are built atop a pile foundation and the company estimates that construction should take no more than three to four months.
