Vipp Shelter; A Detox Journey
Travellers are recognizing the importance of a relationship with nature and environmental conservation, and are increasingly looking for places that believe in environmentally friendly and sustainable tourism. By recognizing the need of the era, hotel companies around the world are designing their hotels with a different approach they're diverting from conventional materialist designs to more environmentally sustainable and closed to nature designs, that preserve both the culture and support the local economy.
Placed along pristine, breathtaking lake Immeln and surrounded by a beautiful lush jungle of Sweden, overwhelm your senses with perfect beauty and unmatched comfort. This modern, exquisite shelter is designed for utmost privacy and Scandinavian elegance. Shelter's interior is carefully selected, with a focus on nature.
The idea behind Vipp shelter is defined by Vipp CEO, Kasper Egelund. "We want to invite people to experience firsthand our philosophy of good design in a place [that is] out of the ordinary."
Instead of a widescreen TV, The structure provides you a front-row seat to a gorgeous nature's view; you can stare through its beautiful glass ceiling and fall asleep under the starry sky. It is like a battery charging station for humans, that detox your body from technology while being surrounded by nature. Before planning your stay, you should know that you're signing up for a no wifi zone. At the VIPP Shelter, it's just you and the calming scenery.
Design of the Shelter
It is a 55 m2 black steel structure with dark-toned interiors, the bedroom and bathroom are shielded for privacy, and the kitchen and living room have an impressive glass screen from floor-to-ceiling to view the gorgeous forest.
The self-sufficient residence has space for four people, with one main bed for two people in the upper portion, and additional space on the lower portion, for two guests. Large windows present an out of world view from the home's living space, where an open kitchen is joined by a multipurpose table. Checking in the vipp shelter means taking a break from your busy routine; and enjoying the serenity of the place by gazing at the lake Immeln, and listening to the songs of the forest birds.
There is a sustainable thought behind the whole design, as Morten Bo Jensen, the Vipp's chief designer, explains: "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."
Cost to stay
A night's stay for two people costs 1000 Euros. But since the company opens up a limited number of bookings, it is best to book your stay months in advance.
