The Mirrorcube at the Treehotel
The Mirrorcube is another tree-room of the Treehotel in Sweden.
This building has designed by the Swedish architects Tham & Videgård . People can reach it with a ladder-bridge of 12 meters longness that runs from the ground into the cube passing among the trees.
The Mirrorcube has mirror-walls that reflect what is outside. In this way the building is hidden and camouflaged in the nature like a chameleon and in the same time the building is never the same, it changes day by day. An important artifice has been devised by the architects to prevent birds from flying against the cube: they have clad the mirror-walls with infrared film, that is invisible to human eyes but not to birds. The structure is very simple, consists of an aluminum frame around the trunk where the reflective walls are fixed.
Moreover from inside you can see outside, but people outside can’t see inside!
The dimensions are 4x4x4 meters, and inside everything is made of plywood with a birch surface, an you can see the nature outside from one of the six windows. The Mirrorcube can accommodate two people, inside there’s a bedroom with a double be, bathroom, lounge and a roof top terrace.
