About Phoenix Domes
Phoenix Domes is based on Phoenix Farm, Salt Spring Island - nestled on the West Coast of beautiful BC, Canada.
There is a surge of interest towards geodesic domes, and Phoenix Domes has become the choice of Canadians from coast to coast - great friendly service, curated quality, and reasonable prices.
Our design team is constantly improving our packages for resorts, Airbnb's, campgrounds and guest accommodation - supporting Canadian businesses' profitable expansion into Glamping, and enabling smart Canadians to earn extra income on their property.
These Dome Glamping Packages are also becoming a favourite of the tiny-dome-home movement for residential use - many have found freedom in a low-cost, quick-built, cozy residence they can own... Phoenix Domes has become a leader in the tiny-dome-home movement on the West Coast, now making waves across the country.
For restaurants and hospitality, we are popularizing the use of Patio Domes for stylish social-distancing - and for extending patio season (just add a heater!).
FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS...
TO A THRIVING, GROWING CANADIAN BUSINESS
Freyja built her first dome in 2016 - from scratch, flattening conduit piping with a floor jack against a trailer hitch... after much trouble shooting and a month of hard work, her 32' dome was erected as a summer living space and aerial arts studio. After her first cover blew apart in the wind and sun, she had to find a professional company to collaborate with to custom make a new cover. A new business relationship started...
Now Phoenix Domes is western Canada's first and best distributor of geodesic domes for events, dwelling and glamping!
You can check out our demo domes at Phoenix Farm (on Salt Spring Island, BC) and get a feel for the dome life - more locations coming soon, for our East Coast friends... stay tuned!
“Domes are the strongest, lightest and most efficient means of enclosing space yet known to man.”
— R. Buckminster Fuller
Geodesic domes are composed of inter-connected triangles that lend superior structural strength. Father of the modern geodesic dome, Buckminster ‘Bucky’ Fuller, demonstrated the difference in strength between rectangles and triangles by applying pressure to both structures… the triangle proved to be twice as strong and remained rigid, while the unstable rectangle collapsed.
Buckminster Fuller won an award from the American Architectural Society for inventing the strongest structure known to man.
