THE DESIGN CHASER

Vipp Chimney House

7.01.2019

Danish design brand Vipp has opened the doors to Vipp Chimney House, the third outpost of the Vipp Hotel. Named after its towering chimney, the heritage building has been transformed from ruins by renowned Danish architect, David Thulstrup, and the results are breathtaking. 


The building, a former water pumping station built in 1902, is located near the harbour of Northern Copenhagen, and features a remarkable 35-meter tall chimney. Vipp commissioned Studio David Thulstrup to convert the remnants into a 200m2 guesthouse, joining the Vipp Shelter in Sweden and the Vipp Loft in Copenhagen as yet another Vipp-fitted-destination in the company’s hotel line.


“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.


While retaining the charm of the architectural shell from the beginning of the 20th century, the original, industrial space has been extended with a cutting-edge, modern overlay. Ceiling height amounts to 8.5m in the atrium with skylight view to the old chimney.


Arch doors in steel-framed glass, custom terrazzo flooring, a modern steel staircase and open access to a private terrace are some of the architectural highlights of the Vipp Chimney House. Two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a large open plan kitchen, dining and living space occupy the 200 m2.

“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.
