Round buildings use less wall, floor and roof materials to enclose the same square footage as a rectangular structure. 15 to 20% less material is used to create the same square foot building compared to a rectangular design! This means the possibility for a smaller eco-footprint and more living space for less cost. It also means less surface area in contact with adverse weather conditions, which improves the overall durability and energy efficiency of the home. -Lars Chose Mandala Custom Homes B.C.

“People are very much affected by these structures, whether they are modern Americans or an indigenous person on the steppes of Central Asia. There’s the primordial and spiritual and community appeal of living in a round structure, with its connection to our ancient roots. There’s also the quality of the space itself. With its embracing walls and its open-at-the-top architecture, it is both a protective and soothing space and a symbol of the metaphysical quality of being open and receptive to what life has to bring you. The yurt has a very positive impact on the people who come into contact with it”
- Annie Raitt
