Nestled amidst Denmark’s Thy National Park, known locally as ‘Cold Hawaii,’ the Vipp Guesthouse emerges as a beacon of minimalist luxury amidst untamed landscapes. Crafted by architecture firm Hahn Lavsen and interior design studio Vipp, this one-room sanctuary invites surfers and slow-living enthusiasts to immerse themselves in nature’s embrace.
Taking inspiration from the Old Norse term for ‘people,’ Thy reflects a deep-rooted connection to the Northern Sea’s rugged beauty. Now open for reservations, the Vipp Guesthouse Cold Hawaii marks Vipp’s latest addition to its portfolio spanning Italy, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Andorra.
The collaboration between Hahn Lavsen and Vipp has yielded a structure that seamlessly blends modern minimalism with traditional architecture. Simple geometric shapes and a restrained material palette of aerated concrete, wood, stainless steel, glass, and brick evoke durability and understated elegance.
Inside, interior designer Julie Cloos Mølsgaard has curated a space that juxtaposes the raw exterior with refined interiors. Natural textures and sandy hues echo the surrounding landscapes, creating a tranquil oasis. The two-story layout offers three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an open-plan living area featuring the newly released Vipp V3 kitchen, marrying functionality with minimalist design.
With its harmonious integration into the natural surroundings and meticulous attention to detail, the Vipp Guesthouse Cold Hawaii offers a retreat where guests can reconnect with both themselves and the pristine wilderness that surrounds them.
