Treehouse hotel in Lapland lets you sleep under the northern lights
International architecture and design company Snøhetta has created the ultimate tree house in one of the most beautiful corners of the world. “The 7th Room” is a luxury hotel in Northern Sweden, near the Arctic Circle and its mission is to shorten the gap between people and nature.
The design of the structure is based on the traditional Nordic cabin and comfortably sits on twelve columns in an isolated evergreen pine forest 33 feet (10 meters) above the ground. The light wooden interior creates a cozy atmosphere and large windows offer jaw-dropping views of the Swedish Lapland, including the winding Lule River.
However, one of its most amazing features is an outdoor terrace with a netted base, which offers visitors an unforgettable experience under the Northern Lights. Besides that, the nearly 600 square feet (55 square meters) space hosts a social lounge area, bathroom, and two bedrooms. It accommodates up to five people and is accessible via a staircase and a small lift.
The wooden dwelling belongs to Treehotel which aims to introduce tourists to the Northern Lights in the Arctic Circle. Treehotel also owns another six treehouse suites, all designed by Scandinavian architects, but the latest addition by Snøhetta is their tallest and largest one yet.
