The Treehotel is set to open this weekend. Located in Harads, Sweden about 60 km south of the arctic circle - currently consisting of four rooms: The Cabin, The Blue Cone, The Nest and The Mirrorcube. The project was conceived by Treehotel co-founder Kent Lindvall, a former guidance counselor who came up with the concept with his wife Britta. Two additional structures are scheduled to open in October: the UFO and a Room With a View. These first six structures were designed by five different architects;sandell & sandberg, interior group ab, marten cyrene, inredningsgruppen and tham & videgard architects.
The Treehotel will be open all year round, so guests will be able to benefit from either a hot summer or a cold winter. In five years time, the hope is that the Treehotel will have 24 rooms each designed by 24 different architects.
