Stockholm-based architects Tham + Videgard Hansson Arkitekter have designed a hotel hidden in the trees, to be located in Harads, Sweden.
Aluminium structures will be hung around tree trunks and clad in mirrored glass. The units will be accessible by rope ladder or rope bridge, each providing accommodation for two people including a living room, double bed, small kitchen, bathroom and roof terrace.
The hotel is due to be built next year.
Here's some text from Tham + Videgard Hansson Arkitekter:
A tree hotel in the far north of Sweden-Harads.
The concept is to create a shelter up in the trees, a lightweight aluminium structure hung around a tree trunk, boxes clad in mirrored glass, 4x4x4 meters. The exterior reflects the surroundings and the sky, creating a camouflaged refuge. The interior is all made of plywood and the windows give a 360 degree view.
The functions provides a living for two people, a double bed, a small kitchen and bathroom, a living room and roof terrace. The access to the cabin is by a rope ladder or a rope bridge.
To prevent birds fly into the windows, transparent stickers, visible for birds, will be added to the facades.
