This Australian design looks nothing like a tiny house but is fully intended for comfortable living. Whether you see it as a futuristic spacecraft capsule or a simple tent-inspired dwelling, the Dome is certainly intriguing and downright flamboyant.
Glamping as a trend is still on the rise, which means there's plenty of room for more and more innovative tiny home designs to cross the boundaries of classic vacation rentals. The Australian Dome is a fine example of a fresh, contemporary approach to Airbnb-style accommodation. Believe it or not, this is a tiny house that's perfectly equipped for comfortable and even luxurious vacations.

The quirky shape and compact size reveal a surprisingly modern interior designed for comfort. All the classic elements of tiny home accommodation are there, including a loft bedroom, a stylish kitchen, a fully-equipped bathroom, and a roomy lounge area. All these amenities are contained within an ultra-compact frame of just six meters (19.6 feet) in length and 3.5 meters (11.4 feet) in height.

The Dome's entrance is fully transparent, which seems to blur the line between the indoor and the outdoor and expand the home's living areas into its natural surroundings. Despite its tiny size, the Dome is also fitted with multiple extra-large windows for even more openness and luminosity – it doesn't get closer to nature than that while still enjoying the comfort and safety of a cozy abode. Even the home's organic shape, with almost no sharp lines and angles, fosters a stronger connection to nature.

The lounge area was strategically set up right in front of this transparent entrance to make the most of the unique views. But don't think that this is a basic, rustic setup; the Dome's lounge fully meets contemporary standards. You have a comfortable foldable settee for multiple guests, a big TV screen mounted on the wall, a modern coffee table, and even a fireplace. At night, the settee can provide additional accommodation.

An adorably tiny deck connects the Dome with the outside. When the weather is right, this is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or admire the sunset. That's when it can double as an outdoor extension of the home's lounge area for added spaciousness.

The master bedroom is located in the loft area, reachable via a rustic rope ladder that takes virtually no space at all. Instead of a classic protection wall, a partial net provides safety without closing off the space. Large windows and an additional skylight bathe this room in natural light while also providing the best views. There's enough space for a queen-sized bed and minimal storage.

A surprisingly modern kitchen dominates the ground floor. Although similar to a kitchenette in size, the Dome's kitchen is much fancier. The U-shaped countertop offers ample cooking space and storage. The standard appliances include a fridge, an oven, and a cooktop (either LPG or induction). The hanging shelf adds a sophisticated touch. A foldable table can be added to create a compact dining corner.

Behind a discrete door, you'll find that the Dome's bathroom is just as well equipped as the kitchen. It comes with a tiled walk-in shower, a classic vanity, and a standard toilet. Customers can also add an outdoor shower, which is a highly popular option for today's glamping tiny homes.

In less than 20 feet, the Dome boasts the luxurious comfort of a much bigger tiny house. A high-end reverse cycle air conditioning system keeps the inside temperature cozy throughout the year, and the modern dimmable lights help create a magical ambiance.

Future owners can also opt for the best materials and the premium appliances that are included in the luxury package. For instance, the windows can be even bigger and double-glazed, and the kitchen countertops can be stainless steel for extra durability.

The Dome can even be turned into a fully self-sufficient, sustainable housing alternative. The builder offers customizable off-grid setups that typically include an electric solar package, a composting toilet, and water tanks. In fact, this Australian builder fully encourages switching to a more sustainable lifestyle, which doesn't mean giving up any of the luxuries of a modern home.

Nick is one of the pioneers of tiny house building in Australia and named his successful brand after his two kids, Natasha and Jaxx. NJ Tiny Homes offers one of the most diverse portfolios in the industry, ranging from classic homes on wheels to pre-fab and modular options. Among these, the Dome concept stands out due to its ultra-compact footprint and luxurious setup.

In terms of pricing, the Dome version with all the bells and whistles starts at AUD162,000 ($$105,800), but it's an investment worth considering for those looking to operate a successful vacation rental. The standard version is a bit more affordable (AUD135,000/$88,000) and still impressive. Innovative yet fully practical, the Australian-designed Dome is proof that there's still a lot more to explore when it comes to tiny living.
