Minimalism and the purity of living.

A brief retrospective first: What actually is a geodesic dome? It was around 1940 when US architect Richard Buckminster Fuller took his inspiration from a German engineer to apply modern day technological know-how to construct a new form of shelter, making them more comfortable, efficient and economically available to a greater number of people.

Fast forward to 2023. Welcome to your own geodesic dome experience in the pristine nature of Sweden. Situated on an elevated rock formation and surrounded by wild forest our dome offers you way more than just a shelter experience. Made in Germany and constructed from 166 powder coated steel struts this certifed structure represents highest engineering and production quality.

Why stay in our dome?

You love being in nature? You love the outdoors and you're open to adventurous experiences? But you also love a comfy and cozy bed at night – a bed that even offers you the chance to count a million stars? You will love our dome! It's like a multifunctional studio inside a tent with two huge windows. This is as close to outdoors as indoor can be.

With a floor space of 20sqm and a height of around 3m our dome offers enough room for 2 people to sleep in a real king size bed and storage for all your belongings. Find a cozy place to read, relax or simply enjoy the elevated view. Whatever the weather, you feel safe and protected here.



Inside and outside the dome.

Instead of just throwing a bunch of IKEA furniture in to the dome, we choose to design and build them all by ourself with the help of professionals for an optimum use of space, for flexibility, a multifunctional approach and the minimalistic design. Except the bed all furniture elements can be moved around by you and arranged to fit your needs.

The outside deck expands your dome experience with an additional 30 sqm outdoor space. There's plenty of room for your morning yoga routine, your bodyweight workout, your sunbathing sessions or any other activity you might have in mind including a peaceful and relaxing afternoon nap.


theory and practice

Is this glamping?

Like with many buzz words, most of them are designed to deliver a marketing message and should make things easier to explain. Even though our dome is actually more a tent, than a house, we rather avoid choosing categories. Staying here is a journey. A return to the basics. An experiment if you will so.

Your dome is not connected to the power grid. Your dome has no access to public water and sewage system (by the way there is none anyway here in our area). But we have all the amenities you basically need: Outdoor kitchen with gas stove, composting toilet and outdoor shower. You are in the middle of nowhere, a fantastic nowhere!
