Go Stargazing in Snøhetta’s Towering Addition to Sweden’s Treehotel
An extension of Treehotel’s mission of bringing modern design to a serene natural environment, the 7th room is a cabin lofted among the treetops that blurs the distinction between indoors and outdoors. Designed by the renowned firm Snøhetta, the structure hovers 10 meters above the ground with a black-and-white print of the canopy covering the bottom façade, creating a trompe l'oeil effect. The two bedrooms, bathroom, lounge area, and netted terrace are arranged across two slightly different levels, accommodating up to five guests. Barring a fear of heights, you can choose to lay your sleeping bag on the double-layered net that connects the two bedrooms and enjoy a night under the stars. Modeled after a Nordic cabin, the 7th room is clad with burnt pine wood with birch plywood forming the interior walls and serving as a tonal contrast. An expression of the landscape and an extension of the hotel’s ecological ethos, the new addition promises to be an awe-inspiring retreat.
The introductory rate for the cabin is about $1,340 for five guests, and includes a buffet breakfast. To book your stay, visit Treehotel online.
