Glass Dome Eco House In The Arctic Circle

6746 ratings | 442253 views
SUBSCRIBE to the Barcroft network: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj A NORWEGIAN family have built a seven metre glass dome around their off-grid house in the Arctic Circle. Benjamin and Ingrid Hjertefolger have spent £340,000 constructing their dream home, which is made entirely from all-natural materials such as sand and straw - in order to live sustainably. Located on Sandhorney Island, north Norway, the 7.5 metre high dome is made up of 360 glass panels and shields the entire house with a diameter of 15 metres allowing the family to grow their own fruit and vegetables inside. The project started back in 2012 and one and a half years later, Benjamin, Ingrid and their four children, Julia, 11, Gabriel, nine, Aron, six and Alvin 10 months, moved into their unique abode.

Can I know how you built water treatment plant inside the dome,as treating the sewage water releases harmful gases ?

A geodesic dome home made of natural cob inside ???? This is my dream house 💟💟💟💟💖💖 The surroundings are breathtaking too. This couple is living a dream come true. These homes are the future.

What a wonderful idea and vision, with the Solardome as the eco covering, designed and manufactured in the UK

Wondering how the plants get pollinated. Do they bring in bees or other natural pollinators that actually belong in that ecosystem? Won't those insects respond to the shortened winter photoperiod and hibernate or estevate?

Absolutely breathtaking, this is the way to live. Closer to nature. Less stress. Less bills. Learn to be self-sufficient. No annoying neighbors, just wildlife and a gorgeous environment. Plus the arctic air is some of the freshest in the world.

Nearly every time I see a story about dome homes, the people are vegan tree huggers, who's only purpose in life is to remain "sustainable" and worship the earth. You know, there are plenty conservative folks out here, who are blue collar working joes and janes, and who would love to own a dome home or cabin. Monolithic and American Ingenuity domes guarantee their domes to withstand tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes. They are fire proof and termite proof. They are extremely energy efficient too. It just makes sense to live in a dome home. I would have a grow dome separate from my dome home though. I live in tornado alley, so a glass dome would not be a good idea.

How incredible! I love the ingenuity and would love to create something similar. Perhaps even larger scale. How much water do you have to buy? What is your power setup? How warm is it in the winter?

Dome houses are the future. We could easily mass 3D print them, lowering housing costs for everyone.

Probably the best way to live in that part of the world. This would be great in Florida but all that glass would melt anything inside. Granted a design that would be hurricane proof would be perfect.

Your home has all the things I put together in my sketches, but I thought of two domes with a glass hall growing area between .the domes cob and partially subterranean. Framed in side for structural but with the Viking outer . I'm looking for land and will be praying for Divine intervention for direction and meeting the financial cost. I am scavengering all all resources for the build . solar panels and board are not yet secure and you know how that goes. But thank you for sharing I can inspire my husband with your video. He knows its my dream.he doesn't quite see it. I feel like I'm on a trip away from it and homesick. So share more please.thanks again.

that's just awesome, but I've built many houses and I know windows are VERY expensive, I would like to know percentage of cost to build house was windows??? must be 75% of their money???? very cool tho.....to bad, I live in southern Canada and we hit 35C to almost 40C Celsius for 2x or 3x months a year and a glass house would just be way way too hot in summer, winter would be great tho.....guess if you could somehow make a removable roof to add overtop in summer, just to add shade, then open/remove some of the top windows to get airflow it might work, but for them more north, it's perfect, I love it

340,000 pounds thats a shitload of money for that thing might as well just build a nice regular house at that point. they sell these on alibaba all day for ~60 grand usd.

Hi Barcroft team, if you could credit us in the copy as the company who made the dome, that'd be great. Thanks!

Its an idea that came from the Eskimos, first they build a large tent to keep out the stormy icy winds, very little temp gain but the wind chill is gone, then they build another tend inside of the large one and a third one made from animal hides, this inner sanctum can be heated with a candle to a degree that you can sleep there naked, lots of work for a happy eve :-)

Some people in the comments are too basic too live in that house or plant their own food.

Humans never cease to amaze me. Building all these crazy things in remote places of the world. I watched the tree house episode and the guy who built his house in a cave as well.

But, these two people have grown up on that island and lived there all their lives. That's home to them.

W aste of space and time and money so overdone and not realistic for a couple and 4 kids ( 3 to many btw) great learning for them tho and I bett my life you wont stay there long~so much wasted space. I lived in a 25 foot dome and it cost 1 tenth of what you paid, and in Canada were the snow is our main season we do just fine off the grid~

We need people like this. Their children need to live in that place and continue their ancestors mission. *To preserve the human race.* Once a meteor/war/plague wreaks havoc on the world, (like it has done hundreds of times in the past) these nomads will carry our species on through time. To dramatic?
Brilliant and effective design. Thank you for sharing!

Nice for off-grid, survival uses, but not ecologically friendly; it took a LOT of pollution to build it based on the (alledged) $500,000 cost. Think about it. Plus, if there is property tax, someone will always need to have an income...which usually means a job (which adds to more environmental problems). Generally, the higher the property's government-assessed value, the higher the tax...so instead of polluting the earth by working, say, 2 hours a week, you may need to work 4 to generate the governmentally forced money transfer. An EarthShip would have been better.
