In an endeavor to attract travelers who want to get up close and personal with nature, a group of award-winning Swedish architects is flaunting a lofty new hotel concept that is set to open in a remote village in northern Sweden. The concept involves tree houses being designed as world-class hotel rooms, which aim to attract eco-conscious travelers.
