Treetop Hotel by Snøhetta

This treetop hotel is not your ordinary treehouse. Located in Harads in northern Sweden, the impressive 55-square-meter (592 square feet) space appears to float ten meters (approximately 33 feet) above the forest floor and camouflages itself within the tree canopy.

Dubbed the 7th Room, it was designed by Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta and sits on twelve thin columns that provide stability as well as the sensation of weightlessness. They also lessen the load on the surrounding trees. An aluminum sheet covering the bottom of the cabin, which the architects call the “sixth facade,” is printed with images of trees reaching up into the sky, further integrating the structure within its environment and creating the illusion of transparency
