Stockholm based Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, directed by Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård, have designed an evasive hotel in the trees, located in Harads, Sweden. The 4x4x4 meter cube is accessed by Rope Bridge and reflects the surrounding forest and sky. The hotel, which first opened to the public in July 2010, was consists of only five tree-rooms and the owners expect to build a total of 24 tree-rooms by 2012.
The plywood interior is designed to accommodate two people, containing a double bed, bathroom, living room and roof terrace. The interior is all made of plywood and the windows give a 360 degree view of the surroundings. To prevent birds colliding with the reflective glass, a transparent ultraviolet color is laminated into the glass panes which are visible for birds only. All of the rooms harmoniously blend into the natural environment with the aim of making a minimal ecological footprint. Take a look!
