A water pumping station with a towering chimney doesn’t immediately sound like an ideal hotel space but design company Vipp together with architect David Thulstrup transformed this 100-year-old Copenhagen water tower into a stunning hotel.
It’s the third hotel for Vipp (who also created the Vipp Loft in Copenhagen and Vipp Shelter in Sweden). Outside, the historic architecture of this old water pumping station is stil visible, but on the inside you’ll find a modern home with sleek design pieces from Vipp’s new furniture line and of course a fully equiped signature Vipp kitchen.
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. Ceiling height amounts to 8.5 m in the atrium with skylight view to the old chimney.
“The Vipp Hotel is our take on haute-couture in the design business. But instead of being unattainable spaces, you can actually check-in.”
