Sweden’s famous Treehotel has commissioned a new room to add to its vast contemporary and individual boutique accommodation - this time, to increase your chances of seeing the Northern Lights!

For those who don’t already know, the Treehotel was brought to life by Kent Lindvall and his wife Britta in 2010 and is located in the tall pine forest of Harads in Luleå, Swedish Lapland. Designed by Scandinavia's leading architects, six themed ‘treerooms’ had been created, each suspended 4-6 metres above the ground. The portfolio of rooms consists of The Cabin, The UFO, The Mirrorcube, The Blue Cone, The Bird’s Nest and The Dragonfly, each with their own unique character.

In January 2017, they plan to expand this architectural paradise and unveil their new accommodation called the 7th Room.

It has been designed by Snøhetta with lighting by Ateljé Lyktan and will be the biggest, highest and most impressive room yet. The design takes inspiration from a classic Scandinavian cabin and is covered in lengths of charred timber to blend into its forest setting.

The room will accommodate five people and will span 100 square metres, 55 of which will be living space; consisting of two double bedrooms, a sofa bed, a lounge, a bathroom including a shower, which will be furnished with light Scandinavian wood and contemporary textiles to match.

What do we love most about the design? The cabin, set 10-metres up in the air, has large panoramic windows facing north, skylights in the bedroom and most importantly a unique outside space, all to maximise your chances of seeing the reclusive Aurora Borealis in all of its glory. The outdoor space will be a net suspending you between heaven and earth as you look out across the forest over the Lule River valley.
