Biodome glasshouses

Our glasshouses create ideal biodomes to replicate different environments. Build your own eco-system to preserve and monitor the flora and fauna of a range of climates from a lush jungle to an arid desert.

Biodome or greenhouse?

A biodome is so much more than a regular greenhouse. A biodome is a self-contained and self-sufficient environment with no interaction with the outside world. The lifecycle of all the plants and animals in the dome contribute to the ongoing regeneration of life inside to produce a genuine biome. Because of this, biodomes tend to be much larger than a greenhouse simply due to the fact they need to house a wide variety of species.

Biome research

A geodesic biodome is ideal for recreating eco-systems and allows scientists to research environments in a controlled manner. By changing the environment, such as introducing non-native plants or changing the humidity, the impact of various changes can be monitored without risk to the natural world.

Your new eco-system

Create your own biodome with either a large glasshouse (Solardome® Sanctuary or Solardome® Paradise), or to create fully insulated and controllable environment for sizes up to 25m in diameter there is the Solardome® PRO system.
