Size & Shape:

Should a door swing inward or outward?

This door swings out.

There are advantages to each.  In this case, the outward-swinging door is designed larger than the door opening so that gross impacts from outside cannot possibly force the door in toward the occupants.

How many can fit inside?

Designed for Three Adults

According to the Standard, this shelter is meant for three adults.  There is no wasted corner space but the roundness accommodates humans who are, after all, kinda round.  The domed top is minimal, but the natural shape for the human form.
