Luxury ‘tree suites’ in a forest near the Austrian town of Kitzbühel designed by Milan based studio Peter Pichler Architecture (you’ll recall Peter’s Dolomite treehouses). 

Envisioned as part of a new ‘7-star hotel resort’, the 60-80m³ cabins and their exoskeleton trestles are made from locally sourced wood. Accessed by glass elevator straight from the forest floor, each has a bedroom, bathroom, living room, sauna and balcony overlooking the pine forest canopy.

The Green machine is rolling.

Ireland’s preparations for the World Lacrosse Championships continued with a FULL exhibition game against Austria in Denver, Colorado.

Ireland won with a positively Germanic 14-4 scoreline.

Tom writes:

“The Irish attack line to work together to create plenty of chances. Kris Prior, Brian Gillis and Tom Riley all notched goals from that position, while Cillian Murphy also made a notable contribution to Ireland’s dominant offense…”

The opening ceremony of the tournament will take place on Thursday evening, followed by Ireland’s opening game of the tournament on Friday against Uganda.

More to folly.
