The Biosphere treehouse hotel by Bjarke Ingels Group, located among the trees of northern Sweden and encompassed by a flock of birdhouses, is now open to guests of both the human and avian variety. The 34 square meter suite, designed for treehotel, marks the company’s eighth experimental guest room. For previous coverage of this project by designboom, including BIG’s fairytale-like visualizations.
This nature lovers’ getaway, with its facade of timber bird nests, was designed in close collaboration with Swedish ornithologist Ulf Öhman. It aims to ‘enhance the surrounding biosphere.’ The introduction of these tiny dwellings is not only for the benefit of bird-watchers. Forestry has led to a decrease of natural holes found in tree trunks, which are safe hiding places for bird nests. For more updates keep visiting My Architecture’s Idea.
