Dragonfly

Rintala Eggertsson Architects as Architects

Named the Dragonfly, this structure will join the cluster of treehouse hotel rooms that make up the Treehotel, which is located amongst the forests in Harads, northern Sweden.


The room was designed to be the largest of the Treehotel's six treehouses.


The building will be attached to eight pine and spruce trees and hover one floor above the ground, so visitors will have to climb a staircase to enter. The 53-square-metre suite will contain three bedrooms and will sleep up to six guests, but could also be used as a conference room for up to twelve people. The exterior is being clad in weathered steel, while the interior is being lined with plywood.


"At Treehotel we always strive to push limits with our environmental work, architecture and engineering," said co-founder Kent Lindvall. "The Dragonfly is clear evidence of this, as nothing remotely similar has ever been done before."
