Tree Hotel - Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The architects have designed light-weight aluminium structures that hang around tree trunks. The cabins are 4x4x4 meters & are clad in mirrored glass. The glass reflects the surrounding environment, creating a camouflaged hide-out, reducing the visual impact in the surrounding natural landscape.

I am a real fan of this project. It is a very interesting way of creating living space in a natural environment, but without affecting the aesthetic look of the forest. I think this could be the new way of creating hotel space in the future.
