Mirror Treehouse


FILED IN: The Biofiles

Swedish design firm Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter have used the mirror concept to great effect with this designer treehouse. Reflecting its surroundings to minimize impact on the environment, it has taken woodland chic to the next level. Of course, the sophisticated exterior, mirrors the interior which includes a kitchen, sleeping area, living area and a terrace. Bathroom? Well, you are in the forest after all!

  1. Minimise impact on the environment?! What about the poor birds who will fly into a solid ‘mirrored’ sky?

  2. Wow, i think this is a stunning idea, however, i’m wondering if this isn’t perhaps an obvious Fire hazard? Using glass to reflect the suns rays, surely this can concentrate it onto the surrounds, and perhaps cause a fire from the intense heat?
