The Girl With The Mirrored Everything

Remember Uppsala from the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series fame? Well... it just got even more interesting, with the planning department approving the development of an invisible department store. Well... When I say invisible, I mean made of mirrors.

The designers responsible were also involved in the creation of a tree hotel in the far north of Sweden, near the small village of Harads and close to the Arctic Circle.

In Sweden, there is a legal right of access to private land, which means you can wander wherever you please in a wilderness packed with wild animals and exotic plants. The design philosophy for the hotel was to create a comfortable, well designed hotel which allows visitors to live in harmony with nature amongst the trees. Click here for room rates. Not for every hippy in the cosmos...
