Biodiversity Registry and Ecosystem Study
EL Domo begins every project with a study of the Water flow pathways and underground channels, Biodiversity presence study. This is done with an intention not to destroy habitats of the birds and mammals present in the property, not to obstruct their pathways.

Positive experiences for visitor
Sustainable Ecology Holiday Homes
When you stay in a dome, you will see stress leaving you: since a dome is a stress free standing structure. You will also rejuvenate because the geometry attracts hidden and less known positive energy from the Universe.
A dome deflects any amount of external wind turbulence with aerodynamics like a well designed car for high speed travel.
Convection currents keep the insides thermo neutral - neither too cool nor hot
When you travel and stay with us, you will have a minimal environmental collateral damage.
Your tour will create a better tomorrow for someone else to visit. Participate in our environment building activities.
