Woodnest Treehouse by Helen and Hard
We recently talked about the architectural challenges of building extraordinary places without negatively impacting, but mostly, using the environment in favor of construction. And in the case of the Woodnest Treehouse of the Norwegian firm Helen & Hard, it was especially the altitude, the complexity of the terrain, and the trees that made it possible to create a unique experience of belonging to nature.
The cabin is suspended 5-6 meters above the forest floor in Odda and guests can access it by climbing a bridge that leads to the trees and door. It’s a modest structure, but functional and cozy, divided into sleeping space, bathroom, and kitchen. Imagine having your breakfast in a leather chair while immersed in the forest, the fjord, and mountains. Phone turned off, obviously.
Throughout the construction and decor, the project used elements of local culture, valuing the use of natural materials and with a minimal footprint. The leather chairs, for example, can only be found at the Woodnest Treehouse, as they were handcrafted exclusively by brand Eikund.
