WHAT IS THIS PLACE?!

This dome place is an amazing idea! Why didn't I think of it myself?!

ALbert Einstein

With a purpose

Our sustainable ethos

We presented ourselves with a huge challenge, establishing ourselves in a remote part of Indonesia, building on a slope and attempting to do it with only natural materials. We wanted to create an eco friendly resort to promote eco-tourism and sustainable housing solutions without compromising on design and comfort – we sure have faced some challenges along the way but we hold true to our principles and we do our best to be as eco friendly as possible. Each time we build we learn from the dome that came before. New things about sustainability get discovered all the time, where we can we incorporate these into the existing Domes and where we can’t we ensure they will be included in the next designs

  • We use organic materials to create our Earth bag structures
  • We are finishing the domes with natural Lime Plaster
  • We are installing Solar Power, attempting to be as off-grid as possible
  • We are looking at different options to create a beautiful and natural infinity pool.
  • We are partnering with awesome like-minded projects .
  • We will base our restaurant menu on the produce that our partners ReNature will grow on their agroforestry farm
  • We are establishing a network with other eco-projects around the world.
  • We are planting on site Permaculture Gardens
  • We promote respectful interaction and co-operation with the local community
  • We chooses bamboo straws over plastic and promote the local businesses that make them
  • We buy recycled wood furniture
  • We are installing bioseptic tanks
  • We will recycle greywater for use on our permaculture gardens
To all you digital nomads

Coworking space

We are proud to partner up with Pura Worka, who's mission it is to shape work towards an art of living by giving people access to ecosystem Services in beautiful co-working destinations around the world. Together with them, we are creating a perfect office in paradise!

SHAPING WORK TOWARDS AN ART OF LIVING

We offer Domes in four unique styles. Each comes standard with SOLAR POWERED air condition, private shower AND toilet as well as integrated flower trellises to provide shade and privacy, so that precious energy is not wasted to cool it down at night. Most domes are modifiable to design adjustments that fit within our concept.

WHAT IS A DOME?

 What is a dome, or also called super adobe structure?
A super adobe is a form of earth bag construction that was developed by the Iranian architect Nader Khalili. The technique uses layered long fabric tubes or bags filled with moist earth, limestone and gravel, to form a compression structure. The resulting beehive shaped structures employs corbeled arches, corbeled domes, and vaults to create single and double-curved shells that are earthquake/tsunami/fire proof and aesthetically pleasing. Through the construction of Eco-Domes we are pushing the boundaries in sustainable housing construction without neglecting quality and comfort. All the while, keeping our impact on the environment to a minimum. Working only with locally burned limestone and natural plasters, we make a form of old Moroccan Tadelakt finish that creates a flawless surface and waterproofs all of our buildings. The wood and bamboo that we use, for example, are treated in salt water against termites and prevents us from having to use pesticides or other harsh chemicals.

Below is a conceptual video made in the beginning of our project. Put on headphones and enjoy!
conservation
  • We have restored most of the natural conditions on the land by our successful first ecological restoration program.
  • We have minimised erosion and water run-off through the construction of three land swells.
  • We have educated our gardeners and staff. 
  • We only import organic seeds that don’t harm or interfere with the natural habitat
  • We have natural filtered drinking water,   which is purified with solar UV light.
  • We make compost and fertiliser out of the organic waste
Water management
  • Each dome is connected to a septic tank that is linked to an overflow terrace with filtering plants
  • We pump our water to the highest point (storage tanks) on the land with solar pumps
  • We have grey water (rainwater or well) systems for the laundry, toilets and garden
  • The charcoal we use for the filtration of the water is made from trees of the land that we had to cut down. 
  • The seven terrace permaculture technique is used to purify the black water run off
materials
  • We use recyclable materials as: local wood & bamboo, metal, glass, hemp rope, recycled plastic roof sheets, coconut shells, soil and barb wire. 
  • The red bricks we use are 100% locally made and produced only 4 KM away.
  • We only buy imported exclusive (but more sustainable quality) building materials for the realisation of the showers and toilets.
  • We polish our salt water treated bamboo with a special developed coating.
  • We mix local coconut shell fibre to reinforce the plaster.
mixtures
  • Our foundation mixture consists of: 80% rock, 20% gravel.  
  • Our wall mixture consists of: 50% pumice stone, 20% soil, 20% lime stone ,10% gravel.
  • Our reinforced mixture consists of: 30% sand, 30% cement, 30 % gravel, 10% Limestone.
  • The cement between the bricks consist of: 60% sand, 35% Limestone, 5% cement.
  • The second layer plaster consists of: 60% sand, 35% Limestone, 5% cement.
  • The final coating mixture consists of: 95% Limestone, 5% cement
waste management
  • We re-use all the non toxic rubbish and use it for the foundation of the roads, stairs and pathways. 
  • We collect and recycle all the glass, cardboard, PET plastic, metal and wood.
  • We make compost and fertiliser out of the organic waste.
  • We reduce the local waste problem by investing in rubbish bins for the the local community.
  • All the soft plastic waste is transported to a landfill instead of being dumped/burned locally
energy management
  • We strive to become completely  off the grid, and  will invest  a lot of our budget in solar power.
  • The electricity for the air fans, fridges, and lighting of all the domes run on a 24V solar system.
  • We use the latest and most advanced solar storage systems.
  • We only supply (extra sockets) regular electricity for the charging of portable devices.
  • The natural coated limestone has sun reflecting properties to reduce thermal heating.
  • Each dome will have a personal hard drive with movies to prevent needless Wifi streaming.
techniques
  • We have used the eco friendly earth bag building technique to realise our houses, terraces, sanitation facilities, stairs, restaurant and swimming pool. 
  • Each dome has a very high compressive strength and is thermally isolated.
  • We have reduced the amount of plumbing- and electricity piping through strategic positioning of the domes.
  • We have created a natural air conditioner.
  • We cool the surrounding air through strategic shading with smart ventilation systems.
  • We use pumice stone to isolate
funding

The road up until the launch of this crowdfunding campaign has been a long and winding one. And there are still a lot of challenges ahead of us. By now we have invested all of our savings and a huge amount of our time to make this dream come true.We are about to launch our Kickstarter campaign. Our aim is to gather enough donations to be able to build in solar panels and construct a water treatment facility along our plan to become an off the grid resort. Our goal is to get 50 000 €  in funding for our final reforestation program, the realisation of a waste water filtration system and the construction of a solar energy storage system.

Materials

The secret of making a Dome more luxurious is to have the right coating and finish. That’s why we are only working with natural paint, plasters and decorative techniques. By adding pigments and working with different plastering  techni-ques we can create flawless surfaces. Our trademark is a final coating that is based on the original Moroccan Tadelakt technique. The natural limestone plaster is polished  and roughened with a stone to harden and waterproof it. The result is a top coating  which is not only very sustainable, but also has sun reflecting properties that prevent unnecessary thermal heating. We have done extensive testing with the locally burned limestone and have found an unique mixture that we use for the  water-proofing of all our buildings. We believe we are at the frontier of sustainable design with the implementation and development of  innovative and environmental friendly building techniques. To minimise our impact on the environment we have chosen to use only locally sourced or recycled building materials. Have a look at our sustainability page for further info about our sustainable approach.

Permaculture.

The land has undergone a huge metamorphoses since we started implementing permaculture techniques to re-green the previous arid land. We are working with certified permaculture designers and are training and learning from the locals. The ultimate goal is to complete our reforestation program and become fully self sufficient in our energy needs and food production. We believe this holistic approach will become the new standard for any form of sustainable development, and we firmly stand by these core principals.

What is permaculture?

Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, environmental design, construction and integrated water resources management that develops sustainable architecture, regenerative and self-maintained habitat and agricultural systems modelled from natural ecosystems. The term permaculture (as a systematic method) was first coined by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1978. The word permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture" but was expanded to stand also for "permanent culture," as it was seen that social aspects were integral to a truly sustainable system as inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka's natural farming philosophy.

Off the grid.

We strive to be completely off the grid and self-sufficient. In order to do that, we have to use a range of new techniques and materials that have only recently been developed. One of our ambitious plans is to have an integrated dual water management system that filters and cleans waste water. The rain water catchment system is connected to a sophisticated network of bio-sand filters that pump the purified water to the water reservoirs up the hill. And the end goal is to have our own off-the-grid electricity. The resort will be completely solar powered and storage of the harvested energy is done by using the latest batteries and innovations in green technology.

opportunity

You get a chance to be a part of the unique concept! This is a rare opportunity to invest in a growing eco project. We offer you the privilege of owning property on a recently discovered pearl of the Indonesian archipelago by leasing out shares of the land and homes on our resort. Lombok has become a hot spot for foreign investors and the growth here is explosive. The Indonesian governments sustainable development strategy is to designate this island into a new eco-region. Since neighbouring Bali has reached its investment peak, property and real estate prices in Lombok have been rising because of continuous growing demand.  Investing in this still “undeveloped” region presents great opportunity and almost guarantees a high return on investment.

why

We grew up in a society where faster, cheaper and more efficient was the trend.

We from Dome Projects Lombok possess the dedication, resources and knowledge to build a community with homes that help facilitate the basic human need to connect with each other, ourselves and nature.

A VALUABLE LESSON

After building through a heavy rainy season, we have learnt an important lesson about sustainability that we like to share with all like minded people out there who are also thinking about building the eco way. We are making a confession about how we’ve become more flexible towards using materials we thought we’d never use. Read more on our sustainability page "concrete confession".
