Rotating Dome Creates Perfect Home Observatory

Rural lakeside house gets the ideal solution for 360-degree star gazing.


The avid star-gazers that live in this lakeside North Carolina home wanted to create an inviting space for their favorite hobby and new home observatory. The tranquil setting with no nearby light pollution is ideal for 360-degree astronomical observation.


We designed a half-opening dome which opens 180 degrees and sits atop a base that rotates 360 degrees for clear viewing of any part of the sky.
