The Vipp Shelter | A Pre-Fab Kitchen Concept and Human Charging Station in the Woods

The Vipp Shelter

The Vipp Shelter is a prefab home that can be drop shipped just about anywhere. Designed and manufactured by Vipp, the company best known for their over engineered — ultra luxury kitchen units, aimed to show off their fabrication prowess developed this half a million dollar pre-fab home nicknamed the ‘Vipp Shelter’ as luxury showroom and human charging station.

Vipp Shelter Drawing

Vipp’s legacy in steel work was put on full display in designing the Vipp Shelter. The 55 m2 steel pod wrapped in metal and glass is a livable design object dropped down in nature. The self-contained industrial chic unit costs $580,000—excluding freight and installation—and is delivered in two containers and does not offer customization.

“The objective was not to just make a house or mobile home ”

— Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer

The designers take an analog approach when creating an operational living space, a machine for living typology, which begins and ends with function. “If you are cold you heat up the fireplace centrally positioned in the shelter for an equal distribution of heat; if you are warm you slide open the parallel windows to create natural air-condition. By locating the house in the deep deciduous woods, we are able to take advantage of the leaves as sun shading in the summer months. In the winter, when the trees lose their leaves, the building’s black exterior absorbs sunlight and with the fireplace, there is a reduction in fuel consumption”.

Vipp is rooted in the manufacturing of industrial objects, so the term shelter is a typology that allowed the company to define this hybrid as a spacious, functional, and very livable ‘object’, and not just a house or mobile home.

The stoic shelter emerges as a rugged room framed by metal panels painted in a silent black that juxtaposes the clear windowed facade that cuts through the structure and sits comfortably as peaceful hideaway anywhere you want it.
