The Industry Leader in Quality Cupolas

A Cupola is a small dome structure that rests on top of a building. First used in Islamic architecture during the 8th century, this structure has both practical and decorative functions.

A cupola is usually shaped like a hemisphere. It can be a dome, or a more pointed shape if used to house a bell or serve as an observation area. Lookouts and “Widows Walks” can be entered from inside the building below.

Some cupolas are even onion shaped. Evidence of this may be found on a lavish private residence nestled in the hills of San Jose, California called Shalimar.

Architectural Fiberglass Cupolas for Churches and Cathedrals

A cupola originally referred to the small dome atop cathedrals which allowed light to enter the sanctuary. Some cupolas in architectural fiberglass house a belfry, others have windows, or openings that leave the inside open to air, assisting in the ventilation of the building. Cupolas with windows that stretch around the structure are sometimes called lanterns.

However, we are probably more familiar with the elegant cupolas that can be found crowning many public community buildings. A pleasing combination of art and utility, cupolas in architectural fiberglass add classic lines and dignity to public buildings. Often used for churches, cathedrals, even palaces, GFRP cupolas add importance to any building by making it appear more impressive.

Cupolas for Government Buildings in Architectural Fiberglass

Cupolas are a part of the architecture of many prominent government buildings, including the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C.  State capitals such as Austin, Texas, and Montgomery, Alabama also have state capitol buildings that feature cupolas.  Cupolas service these structures by making a statement of  importance, and offering a crowning touch of elegance to all who view them.  Cupolas crafted in quality architectural fiberglass are an excellent choice for these structures, as they will weather very well in any climate, and are extremely lightweight.  This makes it less costly than other materials because extra structural support is not necessary.
