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.
Talk about living on the edge! Danish firm JDS Architects has designed one incredibly cool rooftop playground in a densely populated area of Copenhagen.
Located on top of three penthouses, the shock absorbing surface (aka the grass hill) is the perfect place for daredevil kids and their worried parents to run rampant. For quieter times, they can marvel at the cityscape on the viewing platform or relax around the outdoor barbecue.
A little freaky, don’t you think? Let’s look on the bright side. Although that low fence must be a nightmare for parents, children who come out unscathed from that death defying experience may grow up to become even more adventurous and confident than the average person!
