Mirror cube tree hotel by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Mirror cube tree hotel, designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, was opened this summer in Sweden. Located in Harads, about 60 km south of the arctic circle, Mirror cube is an eco-friendly, unique, camouflaged refuge in the middle of the forest. The exterior surface, clad in mirrored glass, reflects the surroundings and makes the structure almost entirely invisible among the trees.

To protect the birds from colliding with the glass walls, an infrared film, visible only to them was laminated into the panels. 360 degree view from the windows allows the guests to enjoy picturesque landscape all year round.
