Today we feature a great Oakland hills A-frame / dome hybrid. One of the downsides of the standard A-frame form is that there is generally only room for windows on the ends of the structure. That problem is solved here through the use of a series of A-shaped gables arranged around a central point. The home’s unusual exterior shape makes for particularly interesting interior spaces with plenty of unique nooks and crannies throughout.

    So curious, my family owns this home. The review and sentiment are so very short sighted. This home, gives and gives- in its expanse, we carry forward with expanded minds.

    I grew up in a geodesic dome dwelling community. It was a prototype community, modeled after, and by Bucky in part, aligned with Buckeminster Fullers Archetype for 4D living.
