Sounds very cool. (And welcome to the list, Moon!)
Reminds me of a dome I wanted to build while at the U. of
Buffalo, NY. There's this great old cylindrical concrete water tower,
across from the Main St. Campus. I thought it'd be great to build a sphere
dome on top of it, and it would look like a giant golf ball on a tee. :-)
I also want to incorporate some sort of central pillar with a spiral
staircase or elevator in the middle of the new dome.
I think the top-floor area with skylights and windows sounds like a
great idea. Maybe an observatory place or atrium/greenhouse...
