Just as Livable as Your Regular Rectangular Houses
The house of the future – or better yet, the shape of the house of the future – has arrived in the creation of the Skydome cabin. This Russian creation reinvents the standard cabin layout in favor of a spacious spherical shape available in six variations ranging in size from 365 square feet to 3,230 square feet. In a number of ways, it may be even better than the regular square or rectangular houses; in the same vein, there are distinct advantages in the latter. It’s all a matter of preference and what your requirements are. Living in a space with curvilinear walls can give you a different feel and sense of contained spaces; or a whole new way to appreciate space and volume as articulated or defined by the wall’s shape.

When you picture “the house of the future” in your mind, you may see a bubbly, white, science-fiction looking edifice; or perhaps something big, curvy and sculptured, like that house from the movie Sleeper. But what if the future’s simpler than all that? The Russian designers at SkyDome . . . think so.
They believe that since home is the “most important place in human life,” the best option is a spherical structure with a large interior.
