A Bird Village On Your Roof
This is quite a unique idea. Dutch designer Klaas Kuiken has created red clay birdhouse shingles that can become part of a home’s roof. I’m curious about how the heat of the sun could effect the living potential of the homes, but the concept is elegant all the same. Having a home clustered with these clay birdhouses doesn’t do much to make up for the loss of natural habitat but it certainly promotes an environmentally conscious attitude that I can appreciate. Conservation and preservation is always the most effective and responsible approach, but any effort is better than none. Plus, these birdhouses are the kind of thing that people are bound to notice and to comment on. That kind of interest is always a perfect starting point for larger kinds of progress and projects. I would be really excited to see someone with an entire village of these red clay birdhouses on their roof. That would serve as a very natural alarm clock of chirping every sunrise.Architecture, Around the House, Eco Homes, Products, To Design and tagged birdhouse, clay, conservation, design, eco homes, habitat, preservation, roof, shingles, wildlife.
