Treehotel[ sweden, Harads ]
Well, with the help of a group of well known designers and architects, we have now turned the idea into a reality. We have a group of unique rooms created in harmony with nature, and with our ecological values. They are all set in the forest where we live, a refinement of the local conditions. “Dig where you stand” as the saying goes. It is important that we find another way to value the forest, rather than to cut the trees for industrial use. This Boreal forest is one of the Earth’s lungs. We need to look after it. Our inspiration came from the documentary film “Trädälskaren” (Treelover) by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. It is the story of three men from the urban environment who look to get back to their roots by building a tree house together. It is a philosophical film about what “the tree” means to us humans, both historically and culturally. It has been our inspiration to expand the idea into a hotel, with the added dimension of innovative modern design. We are working to make the construction and daily running of the Tree Houses as green as possible, which is consistent with our values and, we hope, yours too.
