Reigo & Bauer, Toronto, Canada

Canadian design specialists choose the Solardome® POD as the centrepiece of their garden project.

Reigo & Bauer, a design office based in Ontario, approached Solardome Industries as part of a large-scale garden project in Downtown Toronto.

Their team, headed up by co-owner Stephen Bauer, were looking for a structure that could be used as a sheltered sitting area, while complementing the garden layout and overall theme.

Superior design

As part of the plan for the private urban yard, Reigo & Bauer were tasked with finding a structure that could be used as a focal point and outdoor garden room.

“By using Solardome, we were able to add custom elements to the POD, thereby satisfying the client’s budget and requirements,” said Stephen.

Customer service from the Solardome staff was excellent and delivery was prompt.

“We added floating hexagonal steps, a plate glass door and mirrored film for extra daytime shading and privacy,” he added.

For added flair, the Reigo & Bauer team positioned the dome 18 inches above ground level and, in keeping with the geometric theme, added hexagonal steps up to it.

In safe hands

Reigo & Bauer also took advantage of Solardome’s self-assembly offering, as the Solardome® POD made the long trip across the Atlantic Ocean.

Despite being 12,000 miles away, Stephen and his team had confidence in Solardome’s long track record of delivering high-quality glasshouses across the world.

“Customer service from the Solardome staff was excellent. Delivery was prompt with all components arriving in tip-top condition,” praised Stephen.

The POD, which has also been shipped to the USA, Spain, Belgium and Saudi Arabia, was the second Solardome® geodesic dome to be installed in Canada.
