If you’ve ever dreamed of cuddling up in a contemporary treehouse, the 7th Room Treehotel may be your new favorite getaway. Designed by Snøhetta—a design office that dabbles in landscaping, architecture, interiors, and brand design—the floating bungalow is tucked away in Northern Sweden and perfectly positioned for a sweeping view of the Northern Lights. The 7th Room is elevated by twelve 10-meter stilts and is beautifully built around the towering trunk of a pine tree.
Photographer Karim Nafatni gives new energy to the glowing lights of bustling Dubai in his stunning series of cityscapes, simply called Rooftop Photography. As we have seen before, the Dubai-based photographer and major airline pilot is certainly not afraid of heights! In his ongoing series, Nafatni climbs to the tops of the tallest skyscrapers he can find—some as high as 1,000 feet above the ground— to capture the incredibly vivid, bustling world far below.
By escaping high above the busy city environment, Nafatni provides his viewers with a moment to reflect upon the complexity and inherent beauty of modern and innovative urban architecture. “Most of the time I do let my emotions and feelings guide me and let the shot come to me rather then pushing for it to happen,” says Nafatni.
