A lofty project in terms of both architecture and altitude, the Treehotel opens this Saturday, July 17th. So far, the hotel consists of four rooms, each located in a separate building suspended in the canopy of the lush and pristine Boreal forest. The four units that will be ready this weekend are the Cabin, the Blue Cone, the Nest and the Mirrorcube, each designed by a different architect to be completely unique. The owners of the hotel have plans for a total of 24 rooms designed by 24 architects within five years time. Two more rooms – the UFO and the Room With a View, will be completed this October before darkness descends for the winter season.
The Mirrorcube is a prefabricated cube accessed via a ladder that runs straight up from the ground into the heart of the unit. As one might suspect from the name, the Mirrorcube is completely encased in mirrored walls that reflect the surrounding forest, allowing the structure to blend into the environment.
