Monolithic Domes

"Nature is not a place to visit it is home."

Gary Snyder

The people of Love Communities will live and work in monolithic domes, which are the strongest and most energy efficient structures that are known. is the manufacture of the monolithic domes that we will use.

Introduction To Monolithic Domes (7:51)

Monolithic domes are cost-efficient, earth-friendly, extremely durable, and easily maintained. Most importantly, a monolithic dome uses 50% to 75% less energy for heating and cooling than a same-size, conventionally constructed building.

Monolithic domes began in 1975. There are monolithic domes in almost every American state, and they're also in Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

Monolithic domes are neither restricted by climate nor by site location.

In terms of energy consumption, durability, disaster resistance, and maintenance, monolithic domes perform well in any climate, even extremely hot or cold ones.

In size, monolithic dome homes range from cozy-cute to palatial and include everything in between. So you can plan for just what you need or all that you want.

A monolithic dome can be single-story or multi-story. It could consist of one dome or two or more interconnected domes.

It can have a basement, loft, or an indoor swimming pool. It could be earth-bermed or underground.

It can complement its natural environment, whether that’s a mountain, a beach, a forest, a ranch, or an urban development, and its interior and exterior can be enhanced, embellished and decorated following the same design principles that apply to traditional homes.

Monolithic offers a variety of shapes and both high and low profiles. Our designers work with our clients. Since a dome’s profile determines the size of a dome’s surface area, and the surface area, in turn, affects construction costs, we help clients make their choices.

Monolithic domes conserve natural materials, space, and electricity.

Their construction does not deplete our planet’s shrinking forests. They require a smaller surface area and use fewer materials to enclose that area. They are perfect candidates for a solar-thermal system that captures and uses the sun’s light and heat to light and heat a home.

Compared to a traditional structure of the same size, a monolithic dome requires less air-conditioning and heating equipment as well. That translates into savings in energy, construction costs, and equipment maintenance.

Because of their shape and construction materials, monolithic domes can survive most natural disasters, including tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, fires, bullets, rot, mold, and termites.

Domes are great survivors. Rome still has and uses the Pantheon, built in 126 A.D. Monolithic domes have a long lifespan, one measured in centuries, not just years.

The roof on a monolithic dome home never needs replacing because domes are roofless. Nor must they have a lot of high-maintenance trim.

Various products can be chosen to cover a monolithic dome’s airform or outer skin. You may use paint, stucco, concrete, wood, tile, or brick. Regardless of your choice, the dome will require only a minimum of upkeep.

For your dream dome-home, our library includes floor plans in a wide variety of sizes and shapes.

That size-range includes a tiny one bedroom and one bathroom dome at 452 square feet, to a spacious four bedrooms and three bathrooms dome at 3,544 square feet, and everything in between.

The Orion monolithic dome combines the best of two worlds. It has the strength and integrity of a monolithic dome with the convenience of straight outer walls.

The prices for the monolithic domes will start at about 125,000 USD and go all the way up to 1,000,000 USD, with solar energy included. Also, you may choose to live in a stand-alone dome or an apartment in a large dome.
