Rein­vent­ing the Chicken Coop


This was a cus­tom de­sign for a client, de­signed to match their home. It has off­set stacked cubes and a bright blue, pow­der-coated but­ter­fly roof that matches the roofline of the client’s house. The cladding al­ter­nates be­tween clearcoated marine ply­wood and pan­els painted in Mon­drian-like pri­mary colors. The bot­tom cube houses the food, wa­ter and nest­ing boxes, which also act as stairs up to the top cube where there is roost­ing space. Both back pan­els open for easy ac­cess, and the cubes be­ing off­set al­lows for ven­ti­la­tion.
