The Tree Hotel!

18 Mar

Ever wanted to live in trees? Well in Harads, Sweden you do have the opportunity. Maybe not the “Tarzan style”,  but I wound not mind living in these really creative, unordinary “tree houses”. These rooms are created by the really unique architectural firm Tham & Videgård Arkitekter. The Treehotel is a hotel situated in a Boreal forest! Not only can you live in an amazing room, you have a wonderful view of a beautiful forest. It´s located at the far north of Sweden close to the Arctic circle!

“The functions included provide for a living for two people; a double bed, a small bath room, a living room and a roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope bridge connected to the next tree.”

“To prevent birds colliding with the reflective glass, a transparent ultraviolet colour is laminated into the glass panes which are visible for birds only.”

Here is the link for the hotel (the quotes are from here), where you could book a stay and see more amazing pictures!

A Floating Sauna!

25 Feb

Since I´m norwegian I thought that it´s about time that I blog about something norwegian. I found this floating sauna online at Openbuilding. (The quotes are also from here) The sauna is located in Hardangerfjorden, which is one of the most popular fjords in Norway.

What you can see here is a Finnish sauna room, which can be heated up to 90 C. You can also do it during wintertime, when it´s -20 C outside. A sauna is enjoyed by sitting on the wooden benches throwing cold water at the heated stones.

“Sweat and silence, mental purification and physical maintainance. Anchored in the middle of the fjord, a level of privacy is maintained for bathers. Little winter daylight comes through transparent walls. At night sauna shines as a floating lantern. Access with rowing boat only. Descending swimming straight through the floor of water. Using any kind of soap is prohibited due to ecological reasons. 

This project is possible to construct due to the warm Gulf-stream meeting the west coast of Norway, keeping the sea ice-free the whole year. In Finland sea is mostly ice-covered from December to April, and this sauna should be lifted ashore in wintertime.
