Imagine traveling and staying in a spot that feels like a house yet is magically nestled amidst nature—an adult treehouse to be precise! Let the adventure commence with Baumraum, a German architectural firm that envisions and builds these exceptional, eco-friendly and ultra-modern boutique hotels.
Aside from the revolutionary, contemporary design and style of these lofted luxury hotels, architect Andreas Wenning places utmost importance on materials and installation. Domestic timber is primarily utilized, with larch wood being a predominant material for its strength, beauty and sustainability. Finishes differ and can be natural, oiled, waxed, even varnished depending on the design vision. Energy-efficiency is essential whether for hot or cold climates, with natural materials such as wood fiberboard, sheep’s-wool or coconut fiber matting getting utilised for insulation.
Each contemporary cabin is a prefabrication which comes to life in Baumraum’s workshop. Interiors are sheathed in mostly solid woods, however textiles, metals and synthetic materials are utilized to add to the beauty, comfort and efficiency of these luxury spaces. Technologies like specialty wiring and lighting let for ultimate in-cabin entertainment.
After the cabin is born, installation is achieved taking care not to taint the surrounding eco-environment. By making use of textile belts and adjustable steel cables versus nails, anchors and bolts, mounting is simplified and there is no residual harm to nature.
To date, Baumraum has completed 4 modern day tree boutique hotels. The Baumgelflϋster in Negative Zwischenahn,Germany, is a compilation of 4 separate treehouse cabins astonishingly suspended from the surrounding forest. In reality, each and every 13-meter extended cabin characteristics a breathtaking extended terrace beneath the trees, and relies on 14 erratically-placed steel stilts to perch itself approximately 3.5 meters above the lush ground below. Untreated larch wood is the principal material all through every cabin which consists of a master bedroom, full bathroom, living region with a kitchenette, as nicely as two additional beds. Hues are neutral with deep greys, fair blues and mushroom beiges playing soothing backdrop to the forest’s dominant greens. Cozy by no means looked so luxurious!
One more fascinating German house is the Scout Treehouse situated on an Almke campsite. This contemporary cabin was built in collaboration with the regional scout organization VCP Wolfsburg and is a designated meeting location for scouts, their organizers and households alike. Again, larch is the major wood which permits for the strength to sustain these two treehouse cabins plus terraces. The reduced cabin sleeps 8, while the upper cabin is outfitted with benches and a small kitchen with oven. Although fairly rustic, the Scout is equally as inventive.
A spectacular modern day American tree hotel is the Coldwater close to Pensacola,Florida. This mesmerizing habitat beholds eco-beauty in its signature river, Coldwater Creek, where animal life, cotton fields and fresh flowing water are abundant. Designated a vast ecological tourism project, the Coldwater treehouse is the initial prototype of this house. Two cabins co-exist: the bigger features the window-walled sleeping area, while the smaller sized homes the bathroom and a small kitchen. In among sits a Bridge Residence which initially was constructed especially for that goal. However, the design migrated exactly where this structure now gives units featuring two cabins with living space, bathroom, a mini kitchen and sleeping quarters. This clever contemporary design and style affords efficiency while in a luxury boutique hotel setting.
The final Baumraum hotel house is the ultimate un-treehouse. Built in Mendoza, Argentina as an extension to wellness hotel, Cielos, “Limited Edition” is spectacular as it sits not atop trees, but over 5 meters above visions of stunning vineyards at the base of the breathtakingAndes. The epitome of little luxury, this elliptical “wine loft” cabin with floating terrace stuns with natural sunlight flooding the studio space of a sleeping region and lounge replete with mini-bar cabinet. Blue skies and green vines are a playful juxtaposition to the interior black chandelier and bright red seating of this boutique hotel “pod.”
