Default Circular Aircraft Hangar

I remember seeing some time back a hangar design that used a circular
dome style building. It showed GA airplanes all backed in and seemed
like it used the space well. A Google search on round, circular, and
dome aircraft hangars did not lead me to the hangar that I was looking
for.

Anyone remember seeing something like this?

And before I hit send I meant to add that at one time they had a drawing as
you describe but I don't see it on their site now.

took place with the construction of the Carousel Hangar. Clark W. Smith of
Decatur, Indiana, patented the design of the Carousel Hangar in 1965. Mr.
Smith built this prototype four-place hangar in 1966, and it is the only
example of this design ever built."

At Stroudsburg-Pocono airport (N53) there are three hangars that are domes
with doors that flip up into the roof of the dome, like big eyelids. Nice
looking hangars that each hold one plane. Not space efficient, but they
look strong. Don't know who made them or when.

I saw some hangars very much like these at the Monterey CA airport some
years
ago. IIRC they were scheduled to be torn down (they were rather
decrepit).
