Treehotel, Sweden

Every so often we all want to escape the craziness of the real world in search of a little peace and tranquility – and nature is one of the places where we can find it. Combine that with contemporary green architecture and you have the Treehotel.

Located in the town of Harads in Swedish Lapland, the Treehotel has five unique “rooms” 4-6 meters above ground, creating minimal disturbance to its surrounding of hundred-year-old pine trees in the forest. Each room is accessible via a ramp, bridge or electric stairs. Rooms can accommodate up to 4 people. Check out some of these rooms:

The Mirrorcube
Tham & Videgård architects, Bolle Tham & Martin Videgård
Double room with a Queen-sized bed

This “room” has an aluminum frame mounted around the tree trunk with walls covered with reflective glass. Infrared film were added to avoid birds flying into the mirrored walls.
