With the breadth of globalization and the depth of localization, we are witnessing a revolution in architecture and design, and the glamping dome is at the center of this change.
Choice, autonomy, physical and mental health and well-being have become the primary conditions for individuals to perform at their best. From health checks and contactless security to self-relaxation, people are focusing on the glamping experience. Outdoor Spaces are becoming an integral part of life, and dome’s open facade and spacious terraces provide additional flexibility.
In this new era, dome design future trends will focus on one theme: “Re-establishing relationships”, which aims to reconnect people with nature and provide luxurious experiences. This strategy revolves around four key drivers:
(1) People’s strong desire to reconnect with nature;
(2) Future opportunities to reinvent glamping;
(3) A new commitment to environmental action;
(4) Redefine the concept of glamping space in the digital age.
Ecological and design features of Glmaping dome
1/ Design concept of ecological sustainability
The Glamping dome structure was built to minimize its impact on the environment. Glamping dome uses basic methods to organize natural light and ventilation to create functional Spaces and internal circulation that both regulate behavior and create life. The basic living space is concentrated as much as possible, which then logically forms the covering of the exterior of the house, as well as the natural environment.
The materials and design language of the Glamping dome reflect the characteristics of this era: the use of sustainable resources combined with high-tech elements to create a strong and light glamping space.
The warm touch of the Dome tent tarp is in sharp contrast to the cold technological feeling of the metal support, which is like the eternal theme of destruction and rebirth, triggering a new perception of materials and space.
Glamping dome is not only an architecture, but also an artistic expression that invites us to feel the strong contrast between different materials, resulting in a unique healing experience.
2/ Mobility of indoor and outdoor Spaces
The design of Glamping dome cleverly integrates the external natural scenery into the interior, creating a kind of life story in the magnificent space, allowing people to feel the rhythm of life in the natural beauty. By introducing the outdoor natural landscape into the interior, the noble sense of dome structure is upgraded. In the grand space, the tiny life in the narrative is easier to adjust the mood of the space, just like the moss growing silently. Let the viewer himself be the scene, and make himself a part of the scene.
3/ Application of innovative technologies
The star product of SHELTER DOME — 12m PVDF Tarpaulin Dome. Its outer cloth is made of the latest PVDF as raw material. The fluorocarbon coating, which is prepared by appropriate mixing and spraying processing technology, has good mechanical strength and toughness and excellent resistance to irradiation and harsh weather conditions. It can be used for a long time and basically maintain its performance in a wide temperature range.
Modular structure of Glmaping dome
1/ Modular Deck
Shelter Dome’s modular deck system is designed to address issues that may be encountered when operating glamping camps, such as anchoring, dampness, sewage and drainage. This system is lightweight and compatible with a variety of terrains, making it ideal for glamping dome.
Shelter Dome tends to minimize waste and carbon emissions, and the modular units are prefabricated in the factory, reducing the resources and energy required for on-site construction and ideally achieving zero construction waste. The design of the modular bathroom is stylish and modern, not only luxurious, but also offers customizable furniture brands and aesthetic options, while precise dimensional measurements ensure that the furniture fits perfectly into the dome, and efforts are made to be environmentally friendly.
Customization of Glmaping dome
1/ Space functionality
Shelter Dome’s flexible-connected dome design gives space designers and architects unlimited creative possibilities. Glamping dome’s architectural space has few constraints on the nature of the site, whether seeking creative living Spaces, unique commercial displays or multi-functional event Spaces.
2/ Flexibility of internal layout
With customizable configurations and a variety of design options, glampingdome’s interior Spaces can be tailored to the individual needs and preferences of customers.

3/ Glmaping dome custom experience
- Challenges of geographical and climatic conditions
Bellissimo Grande is located in the Romanian city of Buzeu, an area with a variety of climate types including mountains, hills and plains. Therefore, the design and material selection need to take into account the different topographical and climatic conditions to adapt to the snow and wind loads in winter.
- Project characteristics and results
The Bellissimo Grande project in Buzeu, Romania, has a dome space with a diameter of 25 meters, mainly used for celebrations, weddings and other events. In addition to indoor event Spaces, it includes a large swimming pool and outdoor recreation areas, as well as superb dining and band services. This spherical space has witnessed many weddings, creating happy and warm memories for newlyweds.
Future trends at Glmaping dome
1/ Flexibility and adaptability are key elements of the hybrid labor model
Mixed operation mode refers to the combination of on-site and remote operation by campsite operators. This new operation mode not only helps to solve the limitations of the traditional operation mode and the problem of work-life balance of employees, but also helps to explore the new glamping strategy. Glamping dome’s level of intelligence will continue to increase, enabling campsite operators to connect with their guests and anticipate changing guest needs. The glamping dome of the future must be more agile in adapting to new ways of operating and equipped with flexible Spaces and facilities to meet the needs of the emerging glamping model.
2/ Healing and Caring: glamping dome’s quest for aging
With the intensification of global aging, the contradiction that ordinary public Spaces cannot meet the needs of elderly activities is becoming increasingly prominent. The versatility of Dome makes it widely used in aging sustainable landscape design: as a healing place, a social gathering place, a landscape sketch. This versatility allows the dome structure to better meet the needs of the community and the environment, creating diverse landscape Spaces while minimizing waste of resources.
The public space is not old, the psychological loss of the elderly, the happiness is not high, is a common problem faced by the elderly in rural areas. How to improve people’s happiness while satisfying functional needs through design is a long-term topic. How to put the glamping dome design into practice on a limited budget. Effectively meet people’s physical and spiritual needs.
What kind of design strategy can really improve people’s happiness? Is to do a bunch of popular rural network red devices? Or to dig deep into the essence of its local culture… Think, overthrow, start again, and wait for flowers to bloom.
How can we build when the resources around us are limited? Which values become superficial or unchangeable over time? Sometimes the best we can do is the basics!
In the trend of the digital age, dome structure with its ecological friendliness and fashion characteristics has become a new chapter of human exploration of the unknown world. The Dome structure is not only a tribute to the natural landscape, but also a vision of a future way of life. glamping dome, with its unique form and sustainable design concept, provides a practical and imaginative refuge for people in today’s increasingly frequent topic of earth.
