In the tall pine forest of Northern Sweden, where the tricolored tree trunks stretch up to the soaring crowns, a new addition to the renowned Treehotel has opened. Hovering ten meters above the ground within the tree canopy, the Snøhetta-designed 7th room provides its guests with a breathtaking view of the Lapland treetops and the Lule River. With focus on the surrounding nature, the design features large windows, a netted terrace suspended above the forest floor, and a tree stretching up through the cabin. The boundaries between indoors and outdoors are blurred, making the cabin part of the forest. Save this picture!SchemaSave this picture!SchemaThe 7th room experience begins when approaching the cabin from the forest. Nearing the base of the tree, the view of the complete cabin gradually recedes as a sixth façade appears. This façade is the bottom of the cabin, where a 12 x 8-meter surface is covered with a large black and white print of trees reaching up into the sky. A staircase brings guests from the ground and up into the cabin, along with a small lift for transporting luggage.Save this picture!© Johan JanssonTwelve columns carry the cabin, reducing the load borne by the trees and its impact on the surrounding forest. This gives a feeling of height and weightlessness, as well as stability. Built as a traditional Nordic cabin, the wooden façade is clad with pine boards. The surface is burnt to create a dark and maintenance free façade. The indoor flooring is made from ash wood, while birch plywood is used for the interior walls. With complementing light, wooden furniture, the interior makes up a blonde Nordic contrast to the dark exterior.Save this picture!SectionThe 55-square meter space is designed to create a place for living. With two bedrooms, a social lounge area, bathroom, and the airy terrace, the cabin accommodates up to five guests. The varying floor heights creates an efficient and playful interior design. The space is laid out on two levels with only 30 cm difference in height. The lounge area is located on the lower floor, while the bedrooms are on the upper level with the beds embedded in the floor.Save this picture!© Johan JanssonSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Johan JanssonThe design of the 7th room aims to bring people and nature closer together, extending the cabin’s social spaces to the outside and further blending the distinction between indoor and outdoor. Entering the cabin, one arrives into the lounge area. This is thought of as a social space, and it is furnished with a central pellet stove and simple, yet characteristic furniture such as Scandia Chair by Norwegian furniture designer Hans Brattrud. A north-facing floor-to-ceiling window gives you the best chance to see the Aurora Borealis on a clear day, giving this social space the name the Northern Light lounge. A large glass door leads from the lounge area out on the netted terrace. The double-layered net spans between the two bedrooms with a pine tree peeking through in the middle. Extending the social space of the lounge, the net becomes a great opportunity for coming even closer to nature. For the brave ones, a sleeping bag is all you need to enjoy the night under the starry night sky. Guests sleeping inside can also look up at the night sky, with expansive, openable skylights in both bedrooms. The bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the cabin, facing the central tree and net, with large sliding glass doors to enter out on the net.Save this picture!© Johan JanssonWith large, generous windows in all rooms, natural light is the primary source of light in the cabin. Snøhetta has collaborated with long-established lighting company Ateljé Lyktan, designing two different custom lamps for the 7th room; a bed lamp mounted to the bedroom walls and a suspended light for the lounge area. The lamps are made from birch veneer, reflecting the light in a warm tone on the inside, while the outside is surface treated black, picking up on the contrasting characteristics of the cabin. Piano hinges make it easy to adjust the amount of light being released from the lamps. The lamps thus create a flexible solution for the large variations in daylight throughout the year in the north.Save this picture!© Johan JanssonWith its wooden characteristics and unique location in the treetops, the 7th room is a celebration of the Nordic cabin and the pine tree forest.Save this picture!© Johan JanssonProject gallerySee allShow less10 Shortlisted Designs for London Holocaust Memorial RevealedArchitecture NewsFumihiko Maki Criticizes Indian State Government After Amaravati City ContestArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Photographs: Johan Jansson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY”center_img The 7th Room / Snøhetta Year: Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Snøhetta Year Completion year of this architecture project The 7th Room / SnøhettaSave this projectSaveThe 7th Room / SnøhettaSave this picture!© Johan Jansson+ 27 Share 2017 CopyHouses•Swedenlast_img read more

Aqueous Shares Pro-Shot Video of Nicktoons Mashup From Halloween Performance [Watch]

first_imgThe members of Aqueous were in full cartoon mode for Halloween last week when they celebrated the costume-friendly holiday at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York along with Mungion. The concert was professionally filmed and streamed live on Halloween night for fans outside of New York City to enjoy following their night out trick-or-treating. On Wednesday the jam band from Buffalo shared one of the nostalgic highlights from the show with a nearly 17-minute video of their performance of “Split the Difference”, which included a Nicktoons mashup of themes from Rocko’s Modern Life and Rugrats.The performance of “Split the Difference” from Aqueous’ recently-released Color Wheel album came at the climactic end to the first set of the show. The track opens up with guitarist/keyboards Dave Loss (dressed as Chuckie Finster) controlling a mix of old-school video game sounds out of his synths while guitarist Mike Gantzer (Quailman) provided a layer of swelling guitar chords at the opposite end of the stage. The song began to transition into the familiar chord progression of Rocko’s Modern Life shortly after the 5:00 minute mark before Loss sung out those weirdly-fun lyrics to the animated cartoon from the 1990s.Gantzer tore into his guitar as the spacey mashup continued into the more innocent melodic theme from Rugrats, with Loss pounding away at the familiar riff on his keyboard starting before the 8-minute mark. The band then began to head back to their original chord structure with more jamming courtesy of Gantzer before they all returned to “Split The Difference”. Not a bad way to end a first set!You can watch the pro-shot video of the Nicktoons mashup below.Aqueous – “Split The Difference > Nicktoons Medley > Split The Difference”[Video: MKDevo]Aqueous will continue jamming their way across the country on their North American tour in promotion of Color Wheel with a show in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday, November 7th.
