I’ve shared the Vipp aesthetic a few times before. Particularly the Vipp kitchen which is sturdy, modern and versatile enough to work in any style of architecture. And then there are the Vipp Hotels which are carefully curated settings, where guests can live with Vipp products including the brand’s new furniture collection in a home-away-from-home setting.
The Vipp Chimney House
The third outpost of the Vipp Hotel chain is the ‘Vipp Chimney House’ which is newly opened. It’s sited near the harbour of Northern Copenhagen and is a renovated water pumping station that was built in 1902. With a remarkable 35 metre tall chimney! It’s the work of Studio David Thulstrupp and it joins the Vipp Shelter in Sweden and the Vipp Loft in Copenhagen.
“The Vipp Hotel is our take on haute-couture in the design business. Each room is custom-fitted and is executed with an extreme attention to detail. But instead of being unattainable spaces, you can actually check-in.” – Kasper Egelund, CEO and third generation Vipp owner.
The building has retained its original period charm but the industrial space has been extended with a cutting-edge, modern overlay. The ceiling heights soar in the atrium, while skylights afford a spectacular view of the chimney overhead.
Architectural details include arch doors in steel framed glass, custom terrazzo flooring, a modern steel staircase and open access to a private terrace. And the layout includes two bedrooms, to bathrooms, and a large open plan kitchen, dining and living space.
“For me it was a dream architectural project, from the strong gestures of the building to the finest interior detailing. I was encouraged to make it edgy, and with that I wanted to add the personality, comfort and aesthetics of a private residence. I wanted people to feel at home.” – David Thulstrup, architect and founder of Studio David Thulstrup.
So now the bad news. It’s not cheap. To stay at The Chimney House you’ll need to find €2,000 for a minimum of 2 nights. It sleeps 4. Maybe for a special occasion?
