Family Transforms Solar Dome Into Perfect Arctic Home

The thought of living in the Arctic Circle isn’t something that most of would find appealing. However, for the Hjertefølger family, life in the Arctic Circle is as good as it gets. In December 2013, the family relocated to the Arctic where they built “a three-story, five-bedroom, 25-foot-high solar geodesic dome on Norway’s Sandhornøya island.” Built from organic materials, the dome provides adequate shelter by protecting the family from the extreme cold.

Supporting an eco-friendly way of life, all of the water used in the home is reused to fertilize the plants in the family’s garden. The dome also offers stunning panoramic views. On dope of being practical, the Hjertefølger’s dome is also an architectural work of art. With the success of their home, the Hjertefølgers plan to host workshops and classes to help others follow in their foot steps. Take a look at this amazing Arctic dome.

A relatively simple interior gives this home a very cozy atmosphere that promotes community living. A long dining table allows several people to enjoy meals together.

This unique bathroom design is about more than just aesthetics. The home’s eco-friendly design is certainly one of its most impressive features.

Although the Arctic Circle is known for being cold, beautiful views like this make up for it.
