Do you have your sights set high for your summer vacation? The treehotel in Sweden may just be what you are looking for.
Set in the pristine forests of northern Sweden just miles away from the Arctic Circle, the Treehotel combines stunning design with prefabricated treehouse construction plus eco-friendly building strategies that may have you drooling over a vacation in sunny — yes sunny — Sweden this summer.
The idea behind Treehotel is to offer a high-standard accommodation in a harmonious setting. Together with some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, five uniquely designed treerooms were created in Harads, approximately fifty kilometres outside the city of Lulea, Sweden.
The idea came about when owners Britta and Kent Lindvall discovered that the beautiful land around them was being sold for logging, they contacted the landowner and offered to buy it from him. They then contacted architects they had met through Kent’s work as a fishing guide and the results are simply stunning.
You will get to meet the lovely Swedish couple because as a guest, you will enjoy your meal at Britta´s guesthouse served by the Kent and Britt as your hosts in a genuine Swedish setting from the 1930’s-1950’s. However, for guests that desire privacy, meals can be delivered to their room.
The Mirrorcube is really a smart way to blend into the environnement and making it as unobtrusive as possible in this peaceful natural setting.
The Mirrorcube is an exciting hide-out among the trees, camouflaged by mirrored walls that reflect their surroundings. The dimensions are 4x4x4 metres. The base consists of an aluminum frame around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass.
To prevent birds from flying into the mirrored walls, they have been clad with infrared film. The colour is invisible to humans, but visible to the birds.
