The 7th Room at the Treehotel — Lapland, Sweden
Joining the lofty collection of tree houses among the pine forests in Swedish Lapland, is the Treehotel’s seventh offering, this time designed by the Norwegian firm Snøhetta – the most prominent architects to have contributed to the property so far.
Simply called The 7th Room, the timber structure is the highest of the houses at 10m and is the only one with a rope net suspended between the two bedrooms, for open-air stargazing. Inside, warmth is provided by way of a flickering log fire, while a pared down interior of blonde woods, grey accents and cosy fur throws do not detract from the snowy landscape views, which are further enhanced by large panoramic windows and skylights- also strategically placed to make the most of the elusive Northern Lights.
Back on the ground, a 10-minute walk away past the other rooms including the UFO and the Bird’s Nest houses, meals of reindeer or arctic char are served at Britta’s Pensionat, the guesthouse, from which this now world-famous hotel was launched.
