location Harads
function hotel, leisure
contributed by TVA

A tree hotel in the far north of Sweden, near the small village of Harads. The starting point is to create a shelter up in the trees; a lightweight aluminium structure hung around a tree trunk, 4x4x4 meters boxes 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. The tree hotel concept meets the increasing interest in wild life-/eco tourism where one encounter and experience the pristine nature of Sweden. The functions included provides for a living for two people; a double bed, a small kitchenette and bath, a living room and roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope ladder or a rope bridge connected to the next tree. To prevent birds colliding with the tree hotel, a transparent ultraviolet colour, visible for birds only, will be laminated into the glass panes.
