It looks like a UFO, but it's really a home in the round, or a dome shaped home. It's not just dome shaped for looks.
The aerodynamics and off-the-ground build helps protect the structure from hurricane strength winds and earthquakes. It also allows homeowners to take full advantage of the sun's energy. Economically it's very profitable because it uses so much less energy, then a typical home.
In the summer, when the sun changes its position, with the push of a button, the house follows along. As well as when the sun's position changes for the other seasons, allowing it to capture heat in the winter and keep cool in the summer.

The dome home concept is something designers think homeowners find welcoming. People are adamant about homes that are truly innovative, and doing something positive for the environment as well as for themselves.
