‘Mirror Cube’ Tree Hotel Hangs in the Sky

doornob.com
I really appreciate architects who make an effort to have their work blend with its surroundings. Whether it's a new home that pays homage to the historic designs of a neighbourhood, or a structure that almost disappears into its environment, design needs to respect its environment.

This mirrored cube is in fact part of a hotel in the north of Sweden.  The two storied unit contains everything you need for one of those weekends when you just want to disappear for a while.  Bird lovers need not fear; the cube is covered in an infra-red film visible only to birds.
