The “Biosphere” design, located amongst the trees in Harads forest, Sweden is the latest addition to unique Treehotel resort, where nature and imagination are allowed to run wild. This captivating structure was created by the Danish Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), in alignment with their sustainability and natural tourism values.
The team also collaborated with Swedish bird expert Ulf Öhman, and they hope that the Biosphere will increase the number of birds in the woods. He explained why installing bird nests is an important step to take. BIG designed an orb-like structure with an exterior covered in 350 bird houses.
A suspended bridge leads visitors into the Biosphere. Inside, they are transported into a moody and secluded environment, complete with dark-toned interiors and organic materials inspired by the lushness of the surrounding woods. Despite its small size, the room has everything you need for a luxurious hotel stay, including a roof terrace with panoramic views of the landscape.
Each room is designed to interact differently with the forest, and each has its own distinct identity. The Danish architecture firm is the latest to be tasked with designing a room for the Treehotel, which is known for housing cabins designed by some of Scandinavia’s top architects.
Perhaps you can’t visit the hotel now, but feel free to visit the website here to find out more about this finished project and more other innovative and sustainable designs.
