Nendo: Bird-ApartmentPosted: September 14, 2012
Creating the ultimate bird-lover’s experience, voyeurs can observe at the most intimate levels once inside Nendo’s human scale birdhouse. This symbiotic housing structure allows the birds to reside in a relatively natural environment, the forest, while the curious human unobtrusively peers inside. In a world where humans increasingly stray from interaction with the animals and nature on which we depend, Nendo’s Bird-Apartment diminishes the gap between man and these vital, natural, life elements.
From Nendo: A treehouse designed for the Ando Momofuku Center, a facility devoted to promoting and increasing access to nature activities. The facility is located in a forest in Komoro City in Japan’s mountainous Nagano Prefecture. Our treehouse is collective housing for many birds and one person. On one side, the treehouse has entrances to 78 nest spaces for birds. The other side has an entrance for one person, who can look into the birds’ nests from inside the treehouse.
