This Building Takes Treehouses To New Heights

This Building Takes Treehouses To New Heights | Design your life | Scoop.it

Some very lucky citizens of Montpellier, France will have the opportunity to live in a striking tree-inspired high-rise dubbed the “Arbre Blanc,” or “White Tree.” A collaboration between architect Sou Fujimoto, Manal Rachdi Oxo Architects, and Nicolas Laisné Associés, the Arbre Blanc mirrors natural growth patterns in an incredible example of intelligent architecture and design...

Catherine Devin's curator insight, April 22, 2014 7:02 AM

Many projects are looking at how to extend part of the cities in the ocean, this project, to me, expands in the air... a tree or a shuttle with many many wings .

Watch the Northern Lights from Glass Igloos at Hotel Kakslauttanen, Finland

Watch the Northern Lights from Glass Igloos at Hotel Kakslauttanen, Finland | Design your life | Scoop.it

What better way to view the northern lights than from your bed through a glass roof?

That’s what the accommodation Finnish hotel Kakslauttanen offers guests within a village of geodesic dome glass igloos. The unique setting merges old and new using a traditional igloo form, composed of angular glass framework.

The igloos are created from a highly effective thermal glass which keeps the insides nice and cosy while temperatures outside plummet to -30˚. This special glass manages to stop condensation from forming on the inside while also preventing frost from settling on the outside of the igloo to offer guests a clear view of the northern lights...

This is such a different and unique concept of hotel especially with a glass as the roof of the hotel room that allows customers to enjoy the northern lights with the luxury ambience.
However, this kind of hotel concept might have spent a lot of cost to build because of the concept of architecture that prevents the top of the glass roof to frost. Thus, it should be an expensive accommodation to be spent on.
On the other hand, this concept of hotel might affect the surrounding environment.
Therefore, the customers might consider some of these points before they decide to stay in this hotel.

Want to see the northern lights which only appear in a season a year, choosing Finnish hotel Kakslauttanen is the right decision for people who want to see a natural phenomenon. The unique architechture look like a igloo outside but fully furniture inside bring to the customer the best experience while staying here. The igloo, is a dome shaped of Eskimo house use to block of solids snow, built with a special glass so that you can see clearly the view from inside. A special glass was made to prevent the condensation frost from settling on the outside of igloo and keep inside warmer with the temperature at minus 3 degree while temperatures outside plummet to minus 30 degree. I would like to go there to see a special natural phenomenon in the world and enjoy the unique experience you can have.
