What is a DOMESPACE?
A DOMESPACE is a round house--made of wood--which turns with the sun. It is an indivudual house; a commercial or cultural structure; a space which can adapt to any project. But above all, a DOMESPACE is a space for conviviale healthy and cordial life.
What material do you use?
The frame of the DOMESPACE consists of wood laminate beams of Spruce.This material--particularly solid and resistant--is a classified hard material as reinforced concrete.
Thanks to the flexibility of this material, and with the manufacturing quality we manage to obtain, arches are curved with a high degree of accuracy. The lining is in Spruce, insulation is out of pure expanded Cork (in granulated and plates) or wood pulp, the flooring is out of Spruce(beech anoak) as well as Bamboo. Finally the roof is shingles of Canadian Red Cedar with its natural oil for protection.
The rotation :
* Some areas of traditional houses are always in the dark. In a DOMESPACE all areas can get sunlight at some point during the day thanks to the slope of the openings. It is even more the case with the rotation feature; heat and light are availableeverywhere.
* At every moment, it is possible to vary the interior temperature, to make the natural light dance in the rooms " under the wind" during a storm or more simply to change landscape and to benefit from its garden according to the seasons... These are some advantages of the rotation.
* All the «Harmonique» models of DOMESPACE come with rotation features. An optionalautomated rotation is also available. In all cases, the rotation is undetectable from inside

* How does it turn?
It is simple. THE DOMESPACE is fixed on a bed of steel ball bearings in a circular railing.
* How do you turn it:
Generally, rotation is operated by remote control. All the Harmonique Models are delivered with this«standard solution». A small remote control makes it possible to position the DOMESPACE towards either the left or the right-hand sides, according to your wishes. Rotation carries out an outward journey and a return at the speed that you choose, between 1 and 4 inches per second.
Rotation can also be computer-assisted, to program the orientation of the DOMESPACE during the day. It can thusfollow the sun or move away from it. You choose the exact position of the DOMESPACE at the desired hour. For example, during Winter, the Livingroom part is provided with broad windows to follow the sun throughout the day--thus being heated naturally--then to returns to its initial position before you return to your work. Your DOMESPACE is thereby very easy to heat or cool according to your needs.* What is the use of turning your house ?
Rotation has very many advantages: it allows you to use the sun in Autumn and Winter, or--to the contrary--to move it away from the sun in Summer. True savings using passive solar energy!
Thanks to the rotation, you can also isolate yourself from the noise caused by storms and sleep quietly by positioning the bedrooms on the opposite side.This is possible by positioning the windows of your house according to your needs, all thanks to the rotation system of the DOMESPACE.
Lastly, what a pleasure to be able to vary the luminosity and landscapes according to the seasons, or the weather, or, quite simply, according to your moods!
* Don't we have the feeling of "going round in circles" ?
No, one does not have the impressionof turning in circles in a round house as compared to a square house, but one has the advantage of being able to access all the rooms from the center of the DOMESPACE.
* Does it give Vertigo?
During a visit in a DOMESPACE, we can turn the house, and if you do not look outside, we guarantee that you will feel anything.
Indeed, the movement is so smooth that you do not realize its turning;...
