In January 2017, Snøhetta completed their addition to the renowned Treehotel in the pine forest of Northern Sweden.
The cabin is supported on 12 columns, and is based on traditional Nordic architecture, with a wooden façade clad with pine boards. A staircase allows access from the ground, with a small lift for luggage.
Varying floor heights create an efficient and playful interior. The space is laid out on two levels with a 30 cm difference in height between them. The lounge area is located on the lower level, while the bedrooms are on the upper level with the beds embedded into the floor.
