domo geodésico


Un domo geodésico no es solo una solución técnica que optimiza al máximo el material usado y aguanta muy bien tensiones presión y peso. También es una estructura que ayuda a armonizarse con su entorno. La cúpula y el circulo son formas muy presentes en la naturaleza y talvez por esta razón los domos se suelen usar para espacios de meditación o para reconectarse consigo mismo.

Richard Buckminster Fuller es considerado el inventor de las cúpulas geodésicas, ya que es quien ostenta su patente en 1954. Fuller las desarrolló en la década de los 40, creando una de las cúpulas geodésicas más conocidas en 1967 en la Exposición Universal de Montreal, de 76 m de diámetro y 41,5 m de altura.

While the interior details of the ESCAPE models have set a new standard for tiny houses, some buyers really want to start with a blank slate for their own creativity. The ESCAPE Vista OC stands for Open Concept and is a finished shell ready for a variety of uses.
The Vista OC is an open concept design from ESCAPE.


The Vista OC follows the design of the popular ESCAPE Vista. It’s the same 21 feet long and can include a bathroom. The one main difference is the taller windows which measure at five feet high. Buyers have been requesting an open concept for use as a mobile retail space. Other uses for the new model include a mobile office, yoga studio, guest room, RV or food truck. The model also gives you everything for a headstart into tiny living for less than $30,000.

The Vista OC can be purchased as a shell; the interior is then customized.



Built on a steel trailer with steel joists and rodent barrier, the Vista OC comes with several different exterior finishes including the Shou Sugi Ban siding. An all cedar exterior is also available. The model comes with Low-E Thermopane windows, entry door, pine T&G walls and trim, maple laminate flooring and foam insulation. Other details include a 30 amp plug and power center, smoke detector and fire extinguisher, U/L approved devices and wiring, baseboard heat, LED lighting and the option for solar connections.
UNTUCKit, a clothing retailer, uses the Vista OC as a mobile shop.



Options like upgraded hardwood flooring and kitchen cabinetry can also be added. There is no plumbing in the standard Vista OC, but a bathroom package and on-board gray water tank can be built into a finished product. The toilet options range from a TOTO toilet, Separett Villa 9200 composting toilet or a Laveo Dry Flush. The Vista OC can also include an exterior shower.
Various options such beds, kitchens and outdoors are available.
