Ocean Builders chose to build round shaped houses, often referred to as circular or dome houses, which have several benefits that make them an attractive option for some homeowners.

As you can see in the video, this is a very unique design, and Ocean Builders’ team will never get tired of showing the SeaPod from all angles! We came up with this design because there are some advantages of round shape houses:

1. Energy Efficiency: Round shape houses have less surface area compared to traditional square or rectangular houses. Added to our smart home features, this design reduces the exterior exposure, resulting in better insulation and improved energy efficiency. It helps in maintaining a more consistent temperature inside the house and reduces the need for excessive heating or cooling.

2. Structural Strength: The curvature of round shape houses makes them inherently strong and resilient against extreme weather conditions, such as high winds, hurricanes, and earthquakes. We don’t have this issue in the Linton Bay, but wherever it will be installed, the SeaPod won’t be in trouble anyway. Indeed, the dome-like structure distributes the force of the wind or seismic activity evenly, providing better resistance to structural damage.

3. Cost-Effective: Dome houses often require fewer building materials compared to conventional houses due to their unique design. This can lead to cost savings in construction, especially when building with materials like concrete or adobe.

4. Natural Light and Ventilation: The circular shape of the house allows for more even distribution of natural light throughout the living space. Additionally, the design facilitates efficient airflow and natural ventilation, reducing the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning during daylight hours.

5. Unique Aesthetics: Round shape houses have a distinctive and eye-catching appearance that sets them apart from traditional boxy structures. Many people find their unique and futuristic design aesthetically pleasing.

6. Reduced Environmental Impact: Due to their energy-efficient nature and the potential use of sustainable building materials, round shape houses can have a smaller ecological footprint compared to larger, more resource-intensive houses.

7. Noise Reduction: The curved walls of round shape houses can absorb sound waves more effectively, leading to reduced echo and a quieter living environment.

Their unconventional design may present challenges in terms of interior space utilization and furniture placement, and finding experienced builders or architects for such projects might be more challenging in some regions. Nevertheless, Ocean Builders’ team is expert in finding the best way to utilize the space as best as one can do! We are the best in taking advantage of round shape unique features and advantages.
