[VIDEO] The Minimalist Prefab Concept Known as VIPP Shelter

All Glass and Steel

 

Can you imagine a house that’s built with the precision of an airplane?  Well, this immaculate 592 square foot abode is one heck of sophistication, made almost entirely of steel and glass.  And despite the cold nature of the materials, it looks like it might make a nice little home, what do you think?  The price tag is just as heavy as the weight of the home, though, at $US 585,000. Nonetheless, the exceptional design and natural color of steel has made the VIPP shed very alluring.

 

75 years of experience with steel processing is used to craft this prefabricated object designed down to last detail. A simple steel grid structurally supports the two level space, where only the bathroom and bed loft is shielded from the main living space. Within the transparent shell, nature is omnipresent yet with a physical blindage that provides shelter. The shelter is a finished product inspired by large volume objects such as a plane, a ferry or a submarine, where every single screw serves a purpose. Each piece of interior and its dominant dark tones are carefully selected in order to keep focus on nature. The sliding window frames accentuate the sensation of living in nature by blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor space. Four guests can spend the night in the shelter at the same time: There is one main bed for two people in the bed loft and the daybed on the lower level can fit two additional people
