In a busy generation that synonymizes traveling with the most sought-after luxury retreats, people often forget that nature is in itself an escape. With the use of steel and nature as the frame, Danish bathroom and kitchen company VIPP created a capsule-like shelter that packs all the essentials for a modern retreat.
The 55 square meter pre-fabricated shelter is structurally supported with steel and is composed of two levels. The ground floor, which is covered with glass windows on two sides, boasts the bedroom, the kitchen, family room and the bathroom. The upper level has a small storage unit with a loft-type sleeping space for another guest.
Nature plays a major role in the shelter’s sustainability. The operable windows are designed to allow natural circulation of air and the black-colored exterior absorbs heat and sunlight when it is hot. A built-in fireplace is also strategically positioned at the center of the shelter to equally distribute heat. The 25-ton industrial pocket shelter can be delivered in 6 months and installed in as fast as 3-5 days.
