The adult treehouse?

In an extraordinary example of impractical but stunning design, a new concept hotel recently opened in the small village of Harads in northern Sweden. It is very appropriately called Treehotel.

Inspired by the documentary film “Trädälskaren” (Treelover) by Jonas Selberg Augustsen, husband-and-wife team Britta and Kent Lindvall plan to have 24 individual rooms available within the next five years. One that’s already booking reservations – and has received substantial press, including coverage by Architectural Record – is the Mirrorcube designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter.

Tham & Videgård Arkitekter’s “camouflaged refuge

According the Treehotel, “The cube provides living space for two people: a double bed, bath, a living room and roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope bridge.”

“The concept is to create a shelter up in the trees,” write the architects.

July 23′s daily design idea is try a modern take on a childhood fantasy space. Obviously this approach succeeds at getting people excited about your design, especially when it’s also eco-friendly.
