Designed by Danish design company Vipp, Vipp Shelter is a 55 square meter steel architecture that allows you to escape urban chaos in a 55 m2 all-inclusive nature retreat. The simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Based on designer, the shelter doesn’t mean to be a house or a mobile home, it is just a spacious, functional, and livable industrial object. The core idea of the shelter is going back to basics; back to nature with basic functions defining a dense and compact space. In that way, the shelter becomes a tool that facilitates a nature escape.
Built by a Canadian software developer Joel Allen, this tiny HemLoft treehouse was built using mostly recycled materials and located in the woods of Whistler. The treehouse is shaped like an egg. Of course, it can’t be that spacious but with well organized, it has plenty of room to spend a few nights under the stars, enjoying everything the great outdoors has to offer. However, the hemloft was built on crown land and is kinda of illegal. Joel kept this project a secret for three years, but he eventually contacted Dwell Magazine, which was the first publication to break the story. After all the effort Joel made and support people gave, owner of Canadian Wilderness Adventures (CWA) Allan Crawford has agreed to house the egg-shaped structure on the tour company’s tenure in the Callaghan Valley.
