This year, Danish design brand Vipp opened the doors to a new countryside guesthouse created by the Dutch design studio Studiotoff. Now they welcome us to a Scandinavian design villa in Puglia in the South of Italy with a perfect blend of modern luxury and impeccable design.
Located on the heel of Italy in the village of Ostuni in the Puglia region, a place that has earned a reputation for being one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, Villa Vipp is a new spot worth staying in.
The one-story family guesthouse echoes Puglia’s whitewashed building typology punctuating the scenic landscape. Studiotoff has managed to erect a modern retreat with respect to the architectural vernacular in a protected historic area. Three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a combined living area and kitchen outline the interior in a minimal and beautiful Nordic style.
“What characterizes our projects is a sharp architecture combined with an interior of refined simplicity exuding a calmness and lightness,” says Irene and Barbara, founders of Studiotoff.
A project charged with the classic saying of ‘Il dolce far niente’ (the sweetness of doing nothing), here you step into a timeless pocket where slowness sets the agenda. While the indispensable infinity pool offers a much-needed dip, the veranda lounge area calls for a siesta after a day of exploring.
With the alchemy required to make a guest feel at home, Studiotoff and Vipp have conjured up a haven for the discerning, design-minded guest. A curated furniture selection in harmony with what surrounds it is juxtaposed by objects that add to that rural, simplistic charm of the countryside. With a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living, the villa offers a unique inside-outside feeling.
The open living and dining area of this exquisite villa showcases a stunning grey Vipp kitchen, providing ample space for food enthusiasts to create culinary delights. The dining area is adorned with elegant paper pendant lights, creating a warm and inviting ambience for shared meals. Adjacent to the dining area, a cozy lounge area awaits, featuring a modular Vipp sofa that exudes both comfort and style. This carefully curated space harmoniously combines functionality with contemporary design, offering the perfect setting for relaxation and socializing.
Each of the three minimal bedrooms in this gorgeous villa provides a haven of comfort and style. The cozy beds are adorned with hotel-quality bedding, ensuring a restful night’s sleep. Oak furniture elegantly furnishes the rooms, offering storage space for clothes and personal belongings. The primary bedroom is thoughtfully designed with a desk crafted by local artisans, adding a touch of craftsmanship to the space. Its bathrooms are true masterpieces, featuring stunning white tiling creating a luxurious retreat where you can pamper yourself in style.
