Almost Invisible Mirrored Tree House Built in Sweden

When almost invisible house to be built in Sweden by Tham and Videgard was wrote for the first time, 899 commenters thought it was computer-generated dream, and impossible to build..
But the architects built it, one of six units in a “Tree Hotel”, which recently opened 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle in Sweden, the four-meter glass cube looks as spectacular in reality as it did in the rendering. Kent Lindvall, co-owner of the TreeHotel, has been quoted as saying: “Everything will reflect in this -- the trees, the birds, the clouds, the sun, everything. So it should be invisible nearly in the forest”.
The units are constructed from sustainably harvested wood and have electric radiant floor heating and "a state-of-the-art, eco-friendly, incineration toilet but other than that minor quibble, this appears to be a truly "eco" resort.
