The round shape of Hexidome allows the solar panels to generate the maximum energy at different hours during the day. Depending on the location of Hexidome, our team of engineers and architects will locate the perfect spots on exterior to place solar panels for highest efficiency,
Conventional houses have many corners and dead spots. Hexidome is all open, receives light from all angles, it requires the minimum electricity at night.
The structure does not require cranes, tripods or any machines to assemble. Starting from bottom up the structure is assembled in less than 1 to 3 days depending on the diameter size. Any additional options such as concrete flooring or partitioning will add construction time.
It is a clear fact that a cube's surface is more than sphere's surface at same footprint. Hexidome consumes 23% less material than a conventional cubic house in order to create the same square footage.
The sphere shape helps the structure to push back the wind.
Creates a high wind velocity point right on top which makes it a perfect spot for wind turbine.
The temperature is uniformly dissipated in the dome and naturally the air circulates inside from bottom up. This allows us to keep the temperature static at all times with only 1 air conditioning system powered by the solar panels or wind turbine.
Other than the fact that the dome generates more electricity from solar energy, it consumes less electricity for lighting. It does not have dead spots or corners, hence with a single light in the center of each floor, it lights up the whole level. The extra generated electricity can be sold to the grid.
