Shaded Dome Technologies, founded in 2017, is an independent company, that originated in the collaboration of Royal HaskoningDHV, Poly-Ned and Zwarts & Jansma Architects. In The Shaded Dome, a concept that they developed, the forces from three differents domains of expertise and experience are joined.
Royal HaskoningDHV is a large, international and allround engineer and building company. With The Shaded Dome they contribute to innovation in building techniques for the 21st century.
Poly-Ned is a company that specializes in the application of membrane from textile, synthetics or woven metal in architecture, such as ceilings, facades and awnings.
ZJA Architects is an internationally active architectural firm that develops and designs The Shaded Dome as a building type of the future, that requires sustainability, efficiency, comfort and beauty.
The second prototype of The Shaded Dome is finished and, in collaboration with TNO Defence, Safety & Security, research and testing is being done to further optimize water and energy use. We expect The Shaded Dome to be fully energy neutral in a few years.
