Community projects

Unique community projects

With their multitude of uses and ability to be both a striking centre-piece and covered shelter, Solardome® geodesic domes are ideal for the whole community to share. They represent an excellent focus for engaging people in community projects and collaborative working, and are something for the whole community to enjoy.  They are also ideal as an innovative and flexible space for urban regeneration projects, and their design makes for an excellent, secure but welcoming, central socialising place.

Allotments and urban agriculture

Urban agriculture is the practice of cultivating, processing, and distributing food in or around a village, town, or city, and is a great way of bring a community together. Urban agriculture can also involve animal husbandry, aquaculture, agroforestry, and horticulture. Why not use a Solardome® geodesic dome as a stunning centrepiece in your community? A dome can be constructed quickly and easily on an urban farm or an allotment. They are eco-friendly, efficient, long-lasting and low-maintenance, which means more time and money to concentrate on your community projects.

Choose from our standard range of commercial glasshouse domes or our SOLARDOME® PRO system for habitable dome buildings from 10m – 25m diameter.
