The Hjertefølger family lives in solar geodesic dome located on Sandhornøya island in Northern Norway. They built a three storey, 25 foot high dome having five bedrooms. Their solar geodesic dome is made from different organic materials; the sand, water and clay. The shape grips heat to secure the family from excessive snowfall and strong winds.
It also has a garden area where the family grows their own fruits and vegetables. The dome offers a pleasing panoramic views of its surroundings.
“The feeling we get as we walk into this house is something different from walking in to any other house,” Ingrid Hjertefølger told Inhabitat. “The atmosphere is unique. The house has a calmness; I can almost hear the stillness.” That’s the reward for following your heart.”
The family also hopes to build new cabins to accommodate summer camps and yoga retreats.
