DESCRIPTION
 
The Concept
Tham & Videgård Treehotel The Mirror CubeThe inspiration for Treehotel is taken from the movie “The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsén. A tale of three men from the city who rediscover their roots by building a tree house together. “The Tree Lover” is a philosophical story about the tree’s importance to our people, both historically and culturally.

The idea behind Treehotel is to offer a high-standard accommodation in a harmonious setting where daily stress quickly fades away and guests can enjoy the peace and purity of unspoiled nature.

Together with some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, five uniquely designed treerooms were created in Harads, approximately fifty kilometres outside the city of Luleå. The treerooms are located 4-6 meter above ground, all with spectacular views of the Lule river.

A very important part of the concept is to make a minimal ecological footprint. Therefore, the hotel is built around the ecological values in which substantial resources have been devoted to finding sustainable construction and energy solutions.
Tham & Videgård Treehotel The Mirror CubeThe Mirrorcube is an exciting hidingplace among the trees, camouflaged by the mirrored walls that reflect their surroundings. The dimensions are 4x4x4 meters. The base consists of an aluminium frame mounted around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass.

To avoid birds flying into the mirrored walls, they have been clad with infrared film. The color is invisible to humans but highly visible to birds.

The interior is made of plywood and the windows provide a perfect panoramic view. The Mirrorcube offers an excellent accommodation for two people with double bed, bathroom, lounge and rooftop terrace. Guests enter by a 12 meter long bridge leading up to the treeroom.
