Ex­pe­ri­ence tree house liv­ing

Sno­hetta, ar­chi­tect of 7th room tree ho­tel aims to bring peo­ple and na­ture closer to­gether. With its wooden char­ac­ter­is­tics and unique lo­ca­tion in the tree­tops, it is a cel­e­bra­tion of the Nordic cabin and the pine tree for­est. The 55-square me­ter space is de­signed to cre­ate a place for liv­ing. With two bed­rooms, a so­cial lounge area, bath­room, and the airy ter­race, the cabin ac­com­mo­dates up to five guests. With fo­cus on the sur­round­ing na­ture, the de­sign fea­tures large win­dows, a net­ted ter­race sus­pended above the for­est floor, and a tree stretch­ing up through the cabin. The bound­aries be­tween in­doors and out­doors are blurred, mak­ing the cabin part of the for­est. Near­ing the base of the tree, the view of the com­plete cabin grad­u­ally re­cedes as a sixth façade ap­pears. This façade is the bot­tom of the cabin, where a 12 x 8-me­ter sur­face is cov­ered with a large black and white print of trees. A stair­case brings guests from the ground and up into the cabin, along with a small lift for trans­port­ing lug­gage. The sur­face of cabin is burnt to cre­ate a dark and main­te­nance free façade. The in­door floor­ing is made from ash wood, while birch ply­wood is used for the in­te­rior walls. With com­ple­ment­ing light and wooden fur­ni­ture, the in­te­rior makes up a blonde Nordic con­trast to the dark ex­te­rior.
