The Mirrorcube can be delivered as a kit to just about any location in the world in about four months. If you’re lacking in DIY carpentry skills then you’re in luck – the Treehotel [1] offers options for construction and installment.

An original idea for an enchanting treehouse, the Treehotel [1]‘s Mirrorcube is a magical retreat set high up in nature. Made mostly of wood and recyclable aluminum, it comes with under-floor electric heating [4], lights, furniture and a water-efficient toilet space. And don’t worry about distracted birds flying into your mirror-walled-space – each unit is wrapped in an infrared [5] film that is invisible to humans.
