At VikingDome we design, manufacture and assemble domes that became common in many industries and parts of the world not just because they look good – they obviously do – but also the features this form provides.
Domes much better withstand heavy loads than any other type of building – its own structure and environmental – wind, sand, rain, snow. The interesting fact is that the dome becomes even more stable while affected by those loads! Sandstorm in the desert? Heavy snow in the northern part of Norway? Rain flow somewhere in Asia? No problem.
Domes require 30% fewer utility resources to maintain desirable microclimate because dome cover area is that less in the contact with the external environment compared to square-shaped buildings. Therefore domes are very popular in industries where microclimate maintenance is very important and also costly, like botanical gardens, winter gardens, hotels and public spaces in particular climate zones.
There are a whole set of developed technologies that enable us to design and build domes and curved buildings with control of natural light, temperature, moisture as well as other convenience and safety features.

With our technology, we can manufacture modern and aesthetic dome skylights which not only perform the main function of lighting but can also become the main architectural accent of a building. The dome skylight can be fitted with special automatic windows or smoke extraction openings. We can also arrange glass anti-condensation surface or heated glass. We offer single, double or even triple-glazed dome skylights.
Botanical gardens, conservatories and orangeries
Dome buildings are frequently chosen by the designers of winter gardens, orangeries and zoos. A good distribution of airflow and natural light distribution in the dome ensures excellent conditions for the plants. We build Climatronic domes with climate control systems that allow growing tropical plants, even in the northern climatic zone. It also ensures controlled diffusion of different solar radiation into the interior of the dome, as well as regulates temperature, humidity and air flow. It gives the possibility to build large spaces without columns and beams, which is largely beneficial to dome buildings.
Cafes and restaurants
Dome buildings attract people like a magnet. Add value to your business with dome-shaped cafes and restaurants. Your potential customers are looking not only for the extraordinary places to relax, but also the possibility of having a meal and being entertained. We can also build temporary timber seasonal pavilions and insulated glass restaurants for all seasons. Cafes can be built on water or sand dunes. Share your fantasy, and we will make it a reality for your customers.
Glamping projects and campsites
Dome-shaped buildings are especially attractive for businesses offering accommodation services. Buildings of exceptional architecture and layout draw the attention of holidaymakers and tourists. We build dome camping cottages, luxury glass tourist houses and their complexes.
Domes as residential houses
Dome shapes may be adapted for residential construction as well. People who are looking for a natural and harmonious space for life choose dome houses. In such houses, authentic interior solutions are implemented, and the possibilities of using light are unlimited. We can also build residential houses of the highest standard of energy efficiency for people of the northern region, and laconic homes of light structures for people living in the south. We offer a wide selection of constructions and coatings for dome houses.
Domes for events
Lightweight domes are assembled in low time-frame and designed for concerts, celebrations or exhibitions – good acoustics and sound control, microclimate management as well as multiple options of design. Dome structures are designed to withstand high load hanged on the structure inside the dome, like the sound system, lighting and decorations. Event domes usually are coated with PVC tent for hydro isolation. Transparent and heat-blocking tent types can be used optionally as parts of the whole coating system. The firmness of the dome structure and the thickness of the tent is selected by the geographical area to withstand the required loads like wind, rain and snow. Several adjacent domes can be connected to create one complex designed for the special needs.
We produce quickly assembled platforms (lightweight and space-saving) for event organizers or stationary platform buildings with additional accessories for light installations and other auxiliary structures. No extra pillars and massive structures – dome platforms look light and are functional.
Domes as sport venue covers
Domes are perfectly adapted for riding or running maneges, other athletic sports, as well as for tennis courts, dance halls, ice arenas, etc. A dome for sports or similar activities can be designed in egg, oval or rounded rectangular shapes. Our architectural possibilities allow us to adapt to the needs of a particular project while retaining attractive dome shapes.
Domes are intended to protect existing structures or areas from atmospheric exposure, such as sun, rain, snow and wind. Domes of this type are used to cover existing buildings or protect art objects and heritage structures. They can be adapted for museums, archaeological excavations, etc. Protective domes can be both temporary and stationary buildings. Glass, polycarbonate or clear tent domes are most commonly used to give the effect of fusion with the environment and let in as much light as possible.
Hangars for airplanes
Domes with full-sphere or half-sphere frames are designed for climbing plants. We create wonderful climbing plants with dome architecture. All you need do is to plant climbing plants under the dome edges, the foliage of which will form an impressive and unique structure which will change each year.
Great choice for those looking for a unique place for gardening. Dome greenhouses are convenient since they can be transformed into arbours or orangeries. They come with open windows, special doors and ventilation chambers. We can build simple tent-covered greenhouses for traditional gardening or luxurious orangery glass glasshouses for harmonious relaxation surrounded by plants.
You can have a great evening in such an arbour and enjoy the rest under the dome vault. Arbours are often damaged by strong winds since an open-side coating construction makes it like a wind sail. We can build extremely firm dome arbours which will be several times more resistant to wind and will certainly look exclusive and elegant. We offer small arbours for only several people for private gardens or larger pavilions for events.
