An invisible tree house in the woods

If you have deep pockets and fancy living in the trees a little more you might be interested in this modern take on the classic treehouse, Mirrorcube, designed by architects Tham & Videgård Arkitekter for the Treehotel in Harads, northern Sweden.

Mirrorcube is a 4x4x4 metre cube covered in mirrored glass that can be suspended from the trunk of a tree to accommodate two people. It is constructed of aluminum, glass and wood, and is divided up into a living room, bedroom, bathroom and upper terrace. The house is wired for electricity and also has a freeze-toilet for environmentally-concious sanitation. The reflective sides on the outside allows it to blend in with its surroundings in a innovative way.

Its designers explain “The exterior creates a feeling of space and weightlessness. By reflecting its surroundings, Mirrorcube remains more or less invisible wherever it’s mounted. Mirrorcube is a camouflaged sanctuary among the trees. From a distance it is almost impossible to spot since it melts into its surrounding environment. An infrared film, invisible to humans but highly visible to birds has been installed in the glass.”

Mirrorcube treehouse design is available to purchase for €275,000.
