Visitor Facilities

An extra dimension to the customer experience

Stand out from the crowd and provide a unique, versatile room for your guests to enjoy. Many commercial organisations choose a Solardome® geodesic dome to add an extra dimension to their customer attractions and visitor facilities. Our domes are quick to build, efficient, long-lasting and low-maintenance. You can provide additional visitor facilities, which are beautiful and functional, in no time at all and that can be used all year round.

Visitor facilities with a difference

A geodesic dome cannot fail to be noticed and admired. Guests can relax in a tranquil garden environment with afternoon tea, celebrate a special occasion in a unique building or be entertained in a luxurious leisure facility. The wonderful acoustics and light in the dome also make it a great space for music and art events. If you want to create an opulent reception area, enhance your park with a picnic area, add a cafe at your botanical gardens or provide something extra as part of your hotel or B&B accommodation, then a dome is the perfect choice.

Choose from our standard range of commercial glasshouses, 3.6m -10.1m diameter or our SOLARDOME® PRO architectural system for fully habitable dome buildings from 7.2m – 25m diameter.
