Hiding out in the trees might sound like something a child would do – but this amazing Mirrorcube is both an innovative tree house and the perfect hideout. Check out the camouflaged tree house below and a trip to Northern Sweden will be moving up your bucket list!
Camouflaged tree house Mirrorcube at Treehotel
One hour from the coastal city of Luleå and in the middle of the massive Swedish forests, is a small hotel that offers exceptional accommodation in innovate tree houses. One of the rooms is the amazing Mirrorcube perfectly camouflaged in the treetops thanks to an exterior covered with reflective glass. The 4x4x4 meters cube contains a double bed, bathroom, small lounge area and a roof top terrace. You enter the small house via a 12-meter-long bridge that leads directly from the forest floor to the elevated tree room.
A modern interpretation of living in nature without damaging or disturbing the natural life
Hiding out in the treetops in ‘no man’s land’
The inspiration of the Mirrorcube is the relationship between mand and nature. The design team at Tham & Videgård wanted to reflect the challenging relationship with a simple hut that offers both an authentic nature experience and the usual conveniences to cater for our high-tech needs. The interior is kept simple with a light Scandinavian style and plywood with birch surfaces.
Luleå is part of the Norrbotten county which together with Lapland was previously considered a ‘no man’s land’. The area was populated by nomadic Sami people and their culture still influences the way of living with the local nature. As a modern interpretation of living in nature without damaging or disturbing the natural life, the Mirrorcube is hung from a tree trunk and the reflection of the exterior makes the cube invisible among the treetops. The windows offer a unique 360-degree view of the surroundings and is the perfect spot for hiding out after exploring the pristine nature of Sweden on wild life/ eco tours.
