BIG–Bjarke Ingels Group Designs an Artful Home for Birds That Supports Conservation Efforts in Sweden
2022 Best of Year Winner for Small Resort
Nestled in a Lapland pine forest some 30 miles south of the Arctic Circle, Treehotel is a boutique property comprising just eight cabins, each conceived by a different Scandinavian architect.
BIG’s contribution is a 370-square-foot folly, built of local timber, its steel-grid exoskeleton supporting 350 birdhouses of varying size and shape, creating a “spherical swarm of nests,” partner-in-charge Bjarke Ingels explains.
The design supports area conservation efforts—helping to restore the local population of talltita, rödhakes, and other avian species that can be observed through the lofted interior’s picture windows and glass floor—while giving guests the feeling of being at one with nature.
