tree hotel

Stockholm-based firm Tham & Videgård Arkitekter designed this unusual Mirrorcube Tree Hotel located in Harads, Sweden.

The Mirrorcube is camouflaged by mirrored walls that reflect the surrounding forest. It is a 4-meter cube with a base consisting of an aluminum frame wrapped around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass.

Mirrorcube Tree Hotel  by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter:
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.

The interior is made from plywood with a birch surface. The six windows provide a stunning panoramic view. The Mirrorcube offers excellent accommodation for two people with a double bed, bathroom, lounge, and rooftop terrace. A 12-meter-long bridge leads up to the treeroom.

Britta’s Pensionat is open for Treehotel’s guests, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in an authentic 1930-1950’s setting. There’s a restaurant, bar, sauna and relaxation area, TV, and internet. When you arrive at Treehotel, you first check at Britta’s pensionat; then it’s a short stroll through the breathtaking nature to your treeroom.
