About Phoenix Domes
Phoenix Domes is based on Phoenix Farm, Salt Spring Island.
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 only distributor of geodesic domes for events, dwelling and glamping!

“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.
