These mirrored cubes in the treetops are a virtual way to stay hidden amongst the quiet forests.
Along with the mirrored cube, there are all manner of strange structures in the boreal forests of Sweden. These images are a part of a concept project called Treehotel.
A group of renown designers and architects have banded together to create Sweden’s Treehotel. The goal is to create a hotel with a group of creative and unique rooms that are seamless and in harmony with natural surroundings. The construction and design echoes the designers and Treehotel’s creators’ ecological ideals.
Treehotel describes their concept:
They are all set in the forest where we live, a refinement of the local conditions. ‘Dig where you stand’ as the saying goes.
It is important that we find another way to value the forest, rather than to cut the trees for industrial use. This Boreal forest is one of the Earth’s lungs. We need to look after it.
Inspired by the documentary film “Trädälskaren” (Treelover) by Jonas Selberg Augustsen, Treehotel is all about a group of creatives expanding their inspiration to create a hotel with innovative and modern design that also is in harmony with the environment.
There are 7 room designs, the UFO, The Mirrorcube, The Cabin, The Sauna, The Bird Nest, and a few others.
Prices per night range from 2800-4800 SEK (Swedish), and includes buffet breakfast.
