The Mirrorcube: A fantasy for grown-ups

As a kid, the idea of having a treehouse was the most exciting thing ever, and well, as a grown-up, it still is, especially if it's the Mirrorcube (Tham & Videgard Arkitekter), a product of Treehotel in Northern Sweden.  The glass room, almost invisible to the human eye seems to defy gravity and as it blends so well into the landscape, an infrared film has been installed within the glass to keep birds from crashing into the cube! It accomodates up to 4 persons, and the interior, with its rustic feel and warm wood offers a stunning contrast with the futuristic exterior.
To sleep in a room that brings you close to nature has a price: about 450 euros a night for 2. And I don't think you can bring your tent to camp next to it instead. If you have a nice spot in your backyard, you can also buy it for about 250 000 euros (approximately 335 000$). I know...
Still, if you're in Sweden and are looking for a unique experience, have a look at the Treehotel rooms. The design and the location are great, and you'll be able to brag about your night in the UFO or the Bird's Nest!
