The Vipp Shelter, a prefabricated getaway house of 55m2 surrounded by nature. Vipp has made a shelter that allows you to escape in a 55m2 all inclusive nature retreat. This project exploits the benefits of a pre-fabrication allowing the process to be easy, speedy and cost-efficient. Production takes place in Frederiksværk, Denmark and is estimated to approximately 5-6 months + freight & installation. The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Within the transparent shell, nature is omnipresent yet with a physical blindage that provides shelter from weather conditions. The point of departure is not a piece of land on which a house has been customized taking into consideration the natural surroundings. Rather the Vipp Shelter is prefabricated and built to fit any type of landscape and natural conditions. The only choice left to the customer is where to place it.
“ The objective was not to make a house or a mobile home. Vipp is rooted in the manufacture of industrial objects, so the term shelter is a typology that allows us to define this hybrid as a spacious, functionally generic, livable object ”
Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer at Vipp.
