For The Modern Swiss Family Robinson – Treehotel In Sweden
November 1, 2011
How come I haven’t seen this before?! It is amazing and it is Treehotel in Sweden. For anyone who has harboured romantic dreams of living in a treehouse (Swiss Family Robinson? Oh, yes) and/or anyone with a healthy obsession with avant-garde architecture…
“Why not create a hotel that gives people a chance to experience nature amongst the tree-tops, while also providing a uniquely designed housing experience? These questions led to the creation of Treehotel in Harads – a place where nature, ecological values, comfort and modern design are combined for an exciting adventure.
Treehotel was inspired by the film ”The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. It’s a tale of three men from the city who want to go back to their roots by building a tree house together. “The Tree Lover” is a philosophic story about the significance of trees for us human beings.
The idea behind Treehotel is to offer high-standard accommodation in a harmonious place where daily stress melts away. Guests can relax and renew their energy while surrounded by unspoiled nature.
Together with some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, we created our uniquely designed “treerooms.” The rooms are suspended 4-6 meters above ground – all with spectacular views of the Lule River.
A very important part of our concept is to consider ecological values and make minimal environmental impact. For this reason we devote considerable resources to finding sustainable construction and energy solutions.”
