A cozy pop up habitat: the Garden Igloo

Human habitations know no limits. These days it’s perfectly normal to find a yurt in your neighbor’s backyard or a teepee in your friend’s living room. An igloo? That would require polar temperatures. Not so fast!

Garden Igloo

The Garden Igloo by the eponymous Berlin-based company thrives in any kind of weather, especially balmy breezes. The multi-purpose, pop-up geodesic dome can function as greenhouse, lounge space for reading and relaxing, winter garden, kids’ play room or as a Jacuzzi cover. We love the way it looks all lit up at night, almost like a landed UFO. It’s the perfect chillout space. All you need is some good tunes.

The lightweight igloo comes with easy, step-by-step instructions and is up in a cinch, without any tools necessary. The base is 10 square meters with a height of 2.2 meters. Extras include a mosquito net and canopy cover. It has excellent ventilation and air flow, and its geodesic shape allows for temperatures inside to stay even and not heat up or drop too much, so one need not worry about steaming or freezing inside this fancy little tent.
