New "Treehotel" in Sweden with Original Room Designs

New “Treehotel” in Sweden with Original Room Designs

Located just 60 kilometers South of the Arctic Circle, in Harads, Sweden, the “Treehotel” is an innovative accommodation project, one that is also considered environmental friendly. Treehotel consists of four individual rooms, all with a unique design. The most talked about building is “The Mirrorcube” designed by Tham & Videgard Architects, a 4 meters cube covered with reflecting glass, making it almost invisible within its environment. In the same time, this gives the guests the opportunity to have a 360 degree view of the forest. Other projects include “The Cabin”, “The Blue Cone” and “The Nest” (a camouflaged building by InredningsGruppen) which are already open for visiting.¬† The “rooms” have all the comfort a common hotel has to offer and are said to be built using sustainable materials. In five years Britta Jonsson Lindvall and Kent Lindvall, the initiators of this project, say that there will be 24 different tree buildings here designed by 24 architects. The Treehotel offers accommodation all year long and the costs go up to 420Euros a night for two guests in the Mirrorcube. How do you feel about this project?

    This is just a european approach about integration between spatiality and the natural environment… And this approach is very questionable!

    This is a bird killer!
    And there is nothing green about it!

    Not bad, but…the forest should be the forest.

    i didn’t see the room, so it is made of mirror, but pardon my ignorance, freshome, your recent theme is slow to load. or maybe you have other technical disadvantages, your previous theme, before march 2010 was much faster to load..
