From the architect. A tree hotel in the far north of Sweden, near the small village of Harads, close to the polar circle.

A shelter up in the trees; a lightweight aluminium structure hung around a tree trunk, a 4x4x4 meters box clad in mirrored glass. The exterior reflects the surroundings and the sky, creating a camouflaged refuge. The interior is all made of plywood and the windows give a 360 degree view of the surroundings.

© Åke E:son Lindman
© Åke E:son Lindman

The construction also alludes to how man relates to nature, how we use high tech materials and products when exploring remote places in harsh climates (Gore-tex, Kevlar, composite materials, light weight tents etc).

© Åke E:son Lindman
© Åke E:son Lindman

The functions included provides for a living for two people; a double bed, a small bath room, a living room and a roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope bridge connected to the next tree.

To prevent birds colliding with the reflective glass, a transparent ultraviolet colour is laminated into the glass panes which are visible for birds only.

Isn't out there enough bird-killer buildings, that they need also to invade this pristine sanctuary with more mortal traps?
Profesional narcissism!

It's a fun idea, but it seems the energy has been devoted to the exterior, and the inhabitable interior space is merely a side consequence, rather than having any real valued interaction with the forest.
However, the reflective cube with light squares glowing works great as an art installation when seen from the ground...

There's a toilet, but I don't see a waste pipe (the photos make it hard to see). Frankly, if it has a chemical toilet, it's going to be a crying shame to have something so beautiful and so wonderfully designed end up being nothing more than a mirrored box that stinks of shit.

Peter · January 18, 2011

I'm just wondering what is the biggest asset, of this project. Does it enhance the experience of staying in its beautiful surronding? ...I think no.
Why is it attached to the tree instead of standing on the ground? There are also some technical issues like bathroom ventilation, overheating, flexibility of the structure vs. the glass coating that Im curiuos about.

On the other hand, if I had to choose between staying in this box or a tent on the ground my choice would be this box, just because of its uniqueness and my curiosity...it definately has some attraction

You would still have squirrels crash into your shelter :)

Yes, my first thoughts exactly...very symbolic in it's beautiful cruelty.

drewskiey · January 12, 2011

Their approach is very compelling, attempting to dissolve the ‘figure’ into the ‘ground’. Though it’s a clever way to respond to its context, the sharp, glazed, metallic box still begs to be of its context: the forest. I think Tham & Videgård’s effort is commendable, but this project seems more successful at creating a big effect than a small affect. Just look at the movie Predator, Schwarzenegger blended in with the ground by covering himself in mud, whereas The Predator used his high-tech mirroring capabilities, and we all know how the movie ends.

Tom · January 14, 2011 08:40 AM

Are you seriously critiquing architecture by comparing it to Predator? Wow...

jino · January 12, 2011

Ask the tree

cl · January 12, 2011

kind of trippy! do the anchors/brackets/clamps allow the tree to grow? I'm curious about the detriments to the tree with these types of projects.

Jakov · January 12, 2011

amazing. but it seems very annoying not to be able to open the window in such surroundings

Martin Hedin · July 01, 2011 01:04 PM

You do not want the mosquitos in, trust me

BK · January 12, 2011

Awesome architecture! Really well thought out, almost flawless. I only wonder how practical it will be to keep the exterior surface clean. Even still, it's worth a try given the result -- the structure melts into the forest.
