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?
