Treerooms. The Rooms A total of 8-10 rooms have been planned for the forest area around Harads.


Right now we offer five unique treerooms, built in 2010 and designed by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects. More rooms will be completed in 2013. In addition to the five tree rooms there is also a tree sauna for up to twelve people, situated among the centuries-old pines. Upon checking in at Britta’s Pensionat, it’s a five-minute walk to Treehotel. Each room is unique. The daily operations as well as the tree room’s construction are environmentally friendly, aimed to have minimal impact on nature. We wouldn't have been able to reach this far if it wasn't for our fantastic partners: Designers eye Atelje Lyktan Svantes Vilt & Bär Klassbols.

The LEAP (Living Ecological Alpine Pod), a Prefab Modular Hut for High Altitudes & Mountain Living.

Designed in Italy by Luca Gentilcore and Stefano Testa, the Alpine huts are modular, highly sustainable and complete with a comfortable interior. The LEAP (an acronym for Living Ecological Alpine Pod) is a technologically sophisticated shelter, prefabricated and assembled offsite, that does not alter the environment in which it is placed. This type of installation represents an interesting form of support to trekking and mountaineering activities with a much lower environmental impact than the traditional mountain shelters. LEAP solves all the problems of existing types of bivouac. 3D models: Designed to resist the stresses of extreme altitudes the pod has photovoltaic film incorporated in the outer shell to provide the energy necessary to run the installed equipment: The Interior Space:

What started as simple arbosculptures quickly become inhabitable spaces and entire built environments. Some of the results seem like churches or gazebos, religious or resting places deep in the forest, as shown in the pictures above. Others are more abstract and open for interpretation or mixed-use occupation, changing with seasonal conditions as shown below. Treehotel - Welcome to Treehotel.

NESTREST is made of an especially strong DEDON fiber (4 cm wide, instead of 2 cm), guaranteeing a sturdy and solid weave with excellent properties: it shelters those within, allowing them to look out while preventing outsiders from seeing in – a perfect feeling of security! Creators of the NESTREST, an innovative new hanging pod woven from supersize strands of DEDON Fiiber, Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety are two of Paris’s most intriguing design talents. Close collaborators of Jean-Marie Massaud, with whom they have forged new ways of working and approaching design, Daniel and Fred bring a rich diversity of experience to each project they undertake, alone or in a team.
