Solaleya wowed the public when they showed off their designs of homes at West Coast Green recently. One of the most striking designs was their eco-friendly rotating all-wood dome house. The architecture and design of the dome house is meant to withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes.

The dome home also spins, allowing your home to turn towards or away from the sun to acquire better heat regulation and air circulation. When seen from the outside, the house looks like an amphitheater. Inside, it is filled with green and environmental features. The decreased usage of power-consuming heating systems significantly reduces the home’s carbon footprint. Stats for Eco-Friendly Dome Homes Trending: Older & Warm
