About us and our passion for geodesic living

Welcome to Ekodome – where the passion for geodesic living brought us together, and this is just the beginning of our extraordinary journey.

Based in the vibrant city of Brooklyn, New York, Ekodome is a pioneering startup founded by Sinan Halic, a visionary Turkish descent maker artist. With nearly a decade dedicated to perfecting geodesic dome structures, Sinan’s dream was to create modular living spaces that seamlessly blend function, quality, design, and value, always with sustainability at the forefront. Thus, Ekodome® was born.

As a family-run company, we comprise a small yet dynamic team of engineers and architects fueled by big ideas. Our mission is clear – to contribute globally to the creation of sustainable habitats for the future. Ekodome is more than just a company; it’s a commitment to changing the game in geodesic living.

With each dome we built, we honed our building techniques and sought ways to enhance the overall experience. Existing dome kits were predominantly steel with PVC membranes, while others were beyond the scope of DIY, targeting only large-scale construction projects. Ekodome emerged as the middle ground – a fully engineered geodesic dome system that’s accessible, doesn’t require professional assembly, and doesn’t break the bank.

Our journey took a significant step with a Kickstarter campaign in November 2020. While timing hindered success, our dedicated community continued supporting our vision. Through surveys and collaboration, we designed and developed Ekodome frames with a focus on affordability and fast prototyping. Manufacturing commenced in the spring of 2021, strategically based in Istanbul, Turkey, leveraging cost advantages and superior manufacturing quality.

Today, Ekodome stands as a testament to innovation and perseverance. Join us on this remarkable journey as we revolutionize geodesic living – Ekodome, where passion meets innovation.

The journey began like many dome enthusiasts worldwide, experimenting with paper models of hexagons and pentagons. Over the years, we built numerous domes using various materials, from wood to PVC, galvanized steel to aluminum. Some towering over 48 feet, still standing strong today.

Before we remembered them again in the 20th century, humankind has built domes throughout history, perhaps not only because they are safe and sturdy but also because we don't see corners in mother nature that often. Caves, tumulus, bush shelters, and tents were followed by monumental temples, exhibit spaces, and scientific landmark buildings. We don't just want a roof over our heads; we try to avoid the flatness of the ceiling whenever we can.
