If you like the idea of having your own little escape without having to leave your property, Zendome should certainly be on your radar. That “second space” can add quite a bit to your lifestyle, be it for an outdoor den, a guest house or a point of focus for your back yard patio. The Zendome is the next milestone in the evolution of the traditional yurt, this one with a focus on modern design sensibility.
The Zendome is shipped with 161 powder-coated steel poles, hexagonal joint pieces and an all-weather Ferrari-material membrane. You can place this unit wherever you desire a second space, be it on a natural setting on acres of open property, on a raft like the image below, in your back yard garden area, even as an office in a high-ceiling warehouse.
We spend our work days in a home office, and the urge to get away is a common emotion. To have a second space would be a new room for creativity, a place to separate our job from our home and to work at a relaxing pace on these breezy autumn days. The price is a bit steep for something that appears to be so simple, $18,500 for the Zendome.20 Home Edition shown above, with 20 square meters of space.
