The Dome Home by Timothy Oulton

The Dome Home by Timothy Oulton is a unique, energy-giving space created for the brand’s designers to interact in inspirational and comfortable surroundings, nestled unobtrusively in the middle of a beautiful lychee garden. Pushing the boundaries of innovation, the solid timber Dome Home is a feat of incredible craftsmanship and the culmination of years of meticulous planning by a team willing to take on such a daring challenge.

Entering the village through a cast concrete Moon Gate echoing traditional Chinese architecture, visitors are irresistibly drawn into the beauty and tranquillity of the lychee garden through a lattice bamboo tunnel planted with fruit vines. The central Dome Home and the seven surrounding Round Houses have been carefully constructed to cause a minimal impact on the surrounding environment, located next to the brand’s remarkable four-storey showroom in Gaoming in southern China.

As Timothy Oulton explains; “We wanted to create something beautiful, unusual, thought-out – doing it in our own way.” The interior has been meticulously thought out. The curved lines of the specially customised furniture echo the rounded dome of the building, with the aim of allowing ideas in the mind to float around without obstruction.

The essence of the Dome Home is really about people. To create this imaginative space where designers can actually get together and interact is something very special. Timothy Oulton understands how important the environment is to a designer because being in a relaxed ambience liberates the imagination and allows ideas to emerge.
