Glass Dome Eco House In The Arctic Circle

SUBSCRIBE to the Barcroft network:

A NORWEGIAN family have built a seven metre glass dome around their off-grid house in the Arctic Circle. Benjamin and Ingrid Hjertefolger have spent £340,000 constructing their dream home, which is made entirely from all-natural materials such as sand and straw – in order to live sustainably. Located on Sandhorney Island, north Norway, the 7.5 metre high dome is made up of 360 glass panels and shields the entire house with a diameter of 15 metres allowing the family to grow their own fruit and vegetables inside. The project started back in 2012 and one and a half years later, Benjamin, Ingrid and their four children, Julia, 11, Gabriel, nine, Aron, six and Alvin 10 months, moved into their unique abode.

    Can I know how you built water treatment plant inside the dome,as treating the sewage water releases harmful gases ?

    What a wonderful idea and vision, with the Solardome as the eco covering, designed and manufactured in the UK

    Wondering how the plants get pollinated. Do they bring in bees or other natural pollinators that actually belong in that ecosystem? Won't those insects respond to the shortened winter photoperiod and hibernate or estevate?

    Absolutely breathtaking, this is the way to live. Closer to nature. Less stress. Less bills. Learn to be self-sufficient. No annoying neighbors, just wildlife and a gorgeous environment. Plus the arctic air is some of the freshest in the world.

    Lol. Hjertefølger. That is most likely not a family name but a make up taken name. It literally means heart follower.

    Nearly every time I see a story about dome homes, the people are vegan tree huggers, who's only purpose in life is to remain "sustainable" and worship the earth. You know, there are plenty conservative folks out here, who are blue collar working joes and janes, and who would love to own a dome home or cabin. Monolithic and American Ingenuity domes guarantee their domes to withstand tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes. They are fire proof and termite proof. They are extremely energy efficient too. It just makes sense to live in a dome home. I would have a grow dome separate from my dome home though. I live in tornado alley, so a glass dome would not be a good idea.

    How incredible! I love the ingenuity and would love to create something similar. Perhaps even larger scale. How much water do you have to buy? What is your power setup? How warm is it in the winter?

    Dome houses are the future. We could easily mass 3D print them, lowering housing costs for everyone.
