Invisible glass tree house design

When you talk about a architecture that blends into it’s surrounding you think of buildings that are made to be complementary but this goes a step further, it’s almost invisible. Treehotel in Sweden is now making its glassed tree-top hotel room, Mirrorcube, available for mail order purchase.

Inspired by a film called ”The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. The unyielding question formed was Why not create a hotel that gives people a chance to experience nature amongst the tree-tops, while also providing a uniquely designed housing experience?

Situated in the forest area around Harads, Sweden, Treehotel has now implemented five of the 24 rooms it has planned for the area. Among those are “The Blue Cone,” “The UFO” and “The Bird’s Nest,” all suspended four to six meters above the ground and designed in eco-minded fashion by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects. For those of you that are thinking ahead about wildlife and in particular birds getting a sore head by bumping into the mirror don’t worry; thanks to a layer of infrared film it’s safe for them too. Mirrorcube accommodates two people with a double bed, bathroom, lounge, and rooftop terrace. Retail pricing is reportedly about 275,000 Euros.
