Treehouse Hotel Sunnyvale
Ah, man! We were hoping for a hotel in an actual tree. Like the Swiss Family Robinson house. But, no.
SH Hotels & Resorts has announced that the first US Treehouse Hotel will open in Sunnyvale, CA.
“The free-spirited, environmentally conscious lifestyle brand creatively captures the carefree comfort, freedom, nostalgia and fun of childhood,” says the press release. “Every Treehouse Hotel is founded on the adventurous ideas that inspire a child to build their ‘treehouse’ and hang with real and imaginary friends.”
Wait. Imaginary friends?
“Interiors, including soft sofas built into rough-hewn wooden bookcases, farm table distressed wooden desks and wood ceiling beams, colorful pillows and quirky quilts, collectively convey the childlike wonder of taking refuge in a figurative ‘treehouse,’ looking down at the real world below.”
OK, that’s better.
“Trees felled in construction are reclaimed and crafted by local artists into socially conscious, nature-themed sculptures fashioned onsite. From hand-crafted accents, secret nooks, playful angles, hammocks and hideaways and surprisingly placed lookouts, every element of the adaptive reuse project deliberately blurs the boundaries between inside and out,” the announcement continues.
“Our design consciously connects guests and visitors both to the region’s rich agricultural past and the cutting-edge entrepreneurial spirit of modern-day Sunnyvale.”
But about those imaginary friends?
We’ll have to wait and see when Treehouse Hotel Sunnyvale opens in late 2023.
