    This treehouse isn't technically a tree house; it's a tree hotel. But that's not the only way this treehouse, designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, distinguishes itself from others. Thanks to highly-reflective mirrored glass, this 13-foot cube is practically invisible in the woods (a transparent ultraviolent color -- only visible to birds -- is mixed within the glass panes to prevent them from flying into the glass). The rest of the structure is made of lightweight aluminum and plywood, and is accessed through a rope and wood bridge.
