This modern tiny house has been designed by the Danish design studio Vipp. Dubbed Vipp Shelter, it was the company’s first architectural project. The unit has been developed as a “plug and play” retreat, and Vipp refer to it as a “liveable industrial object”.
Vipp Shelter is 592 square feet (55 square meters) in size. Unlike a lot of modern retreats, it contains a two storey space, but it’s also not intended to be mobile: “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, liveable object.”
The unit is capable of supporting up to four people – there’s a main bedroom found on the upper level, and a daybed on the ground floor. Thanks to its entirely-glazed front wall, stunning views of the surrounding countryside are on show throughout the main floor.
The ground floor is completely open plan (apart from the bathroom). There’s a dining area on the left-hand-side, followed by a kitchen, fireplace and storage unit, and a daybed. The bathroom is tucked away in a corner on the right side of the home.
The industrial aesthetic is prominent throughout, with a rather stark finish both inside and out. The unit has been kitted out with the company’s products, including the appliances and furnishings. It also helps to establish a strong sense of style, in-keeping with Vipp’s own identity.
The team responsible for the design wanted to simplify and speed up the process of creating your own getaway. As such, the Vipp Shelter can be built on your chosen site in just 3-5 days. It also comes with all the furniture and fittings.
