Tree Hotel – Concept in northern Sweden, Europe
Design: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter
Tree Hotel in Harads
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.
The tree hotels will be managed by the Brittas Pensionat (a small hotel nearby) that will also cater for and offer additional services and support. The project is currently in progress and the client, Brittas Pensionat, is planning to have the six first cabins completed in 2010.
