Up a tree

, , , , , , By Catherine

Sweden’s latest hotel experience: Sleeping high above ground, in a room that can be accessed by steps, ramps and bridges up trees.

Elaborated by Britta Jonsson Lindvall and Kent Lindvall, the concept of an hotel up in trees might not be a new one, but the exclusive design and modernism of this hotel will surely set it apart. Stockholm-based architects Tham + Videgard Hansson have designed the hotel.

Located in the village of Harads in Northern Sweden, this exclusive design hotel counts six rooms but will eventually expand to 24. Each room is designed by a different architect and has a different look. The Mirrorcube is one of them: It is a glass cube built around a tree trunk and contains a double bed, kitchenette, complete bathroom, living room and a roof terrace.

Starting price per night: 3.500 kronor ($500)
