As cities around the world become increasingly populous, they’re being forced to expand their sprawl to make space for new inhabitants. Sure, this might make for some extra breathing room between you and your next-door neighbor, but it means that isolated natural escapes are becoming an ever-rarer reality.
However, if you’re after a break from busy urban life, b210 architecture office has just the rental for you. Dubbed the ‘Nature Villa,’ it’s a 300-square-foot micro hotel located on the Madila Nature Resort in the heart of Estonia’s wetlands. As such, it’s been designed to provide maximum occupant immersion with minimal impact on the surrounding environment. For instance, the entire structure was built around birch trees — much like a tree house — so that they wouldn’t need to be cut down. And because of the swamp’s tendency toward flooding, it sits 1m above ground and is supported by deep 7m long foundation screws. Add to that a terraced rooftop for stargazing and a luxe interior that includes a king size bed, a kitchen and minibar, as well as a fireplace and a fully-furnished bathroom, and you have a stay that’ll be sure to stoke your eco-enthusiasm.
