The structural integrity of a yurt is based on a beautiful symmetry of compression and tension working together to form a freestanding, clear span structure.
At the top of the yurt is arguably one of its focal features – the dome and compression ring. From this centering place, perched above the center of the room, all of the wooden rafters and lattice radiate in a geometrically-poetic marriage of physics and aesthetics. It sounds complicated, but it’s absolutely breathtaking in person (and chest-opening too since everyone always looks up the first time they enter).
Yurts can be used for a multitude of events and activities: homes, rentals, classrooms, wedding venues, ski area huts, summer camps – the list is endless. Anyone who needs shelter on their desired patch of planet Earth can benefit from the beautiful, safe, durable solution of a yurt. Create lasting memories in a shelter that fosters a strong sense of place.
