Free Spirit Spheres

Posted in studio 1a_2010 by ionnalaksono on 14 January 2010

If you’re bored of the run-of-the-mill predictable hotel room, there’s a place located in rural Vancouver Island that will lift you up.  These ‘Free Spirit Spheres’ as they are called are literally orbs supported by nothing but trees in the surrounding space.

Designed to accommodate approximately 4 people, these houses are built with the intention of allowing its guests to experience the serenity of the forest and awaken the creative mind.  It is perhaps the most luxurious outdoor experience of its kind, one that is barely invasive to the surrounding environment.

The spheres are supported by nothing but ropes, which means that they are in motion whenever the trees are.  Inhabitants will experience a gentle rocking whenever the wind blows.  Staying in a sphere might not be one’s idea of extravagance, but the experience seems to be truly gratifying and memorable.
