Square Dome 5’x5’x24″ht

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013


Bill is a real genius with pattern, the interlinking circles and lively flourishes give a sense of movement to the overall design. I think it has much to do with a tradition of drawing and thinking with a pencil rather than a computer.

Over years of drafting patterns for domes and windows, he has developed a knack for exact measurement by eye. For example I can ask him to indicate on a piece of paper a 1″ increment or a half or a quarter, etc. and he gets it every time. Some people like quizzes Bill enjoys a skill challenge.

Texas Dome No.2

Monday, March 25th, 2013


This is a 6.5’dia x 2′ ht. leaded glass dome and features a custom painted frame. The opalescent glass was specially ordered directly from Kokomo, and each jewel was sandblasted and hand painted on the reverse side in order to soften the appearance. A very subtle classic dome.

Happy New Year 2013

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Reflecting back on 2012, it was a good year for the Solarium Design Group. We built our largest residential dome at 22’dia and 6’ht, it was roomy enough for the entire staff to enjoy lunch inside. We purchased our building, and celebrated by building a deck out front with the help of Mike our summer intern an Architecture student from Syracuse University. Continued to expand our reach into the International market, with a custom dome built and shipped to the UAE. You should also be able to see us on TV this year, we have done some window restoration work for Damon Bennetts’ pilot Damon Bennett Restoration Co. to air on HGTV Canada.

Looking ahead to 2013, we are busily working on another impressive commercial project in Montreal, a raised racetrack oval 38′ in length. As well as putting the finishing touches on a pair of domes headed for Texas at the end of the month.

2013 will be memorable.
