The Treehotel in Harads, Sweden (within the arctic circle) will initially consist of only six rental units, each with its own theme, set to open this month, and then expanding with an additional eighteen units to be designed and built over the next 5 years. Treehotel, a unique new hotel which has transformed the simple treehouse concept from childhood into a destination for design-conscious travellers, will be unveiled in Harads, Northern Sweden, on July 17, 2010.
The inspiration for the Treehotel project was borrowed from a documentary film that followed three urban friends who came out to Harads and built a treehouse. That treehouse has been used as a rental unit over the last year and ultimately inspired hotel developers to develop this project.
They have all been constructed from wood and glass and feature an electric floor heating system, a state-of-the-art eco-friendly incineration toilet and a water-efficient hand basin.
The interior of each tree house will be uniquely designed using furniture and lighting that complements an individual theme.
According to the company, “What we are offering is a new experience living close to nature in a place of great natural beauty. Where the joyful childhood memories can now be relived in a more comfortable and sophisticated environment.” The inspiration for the Treehotel project was borrowed from a documentary film that followed three urban friends who came out to Harads and together built a treehouse. That treehouse has been used as a rental unit over the last year and is what gave the actual inspiration needed to bring about this project.
