Breed and Retreat Hen House by Frederik Roije
This project named Breed and Retreat, houses hens in a more architecturally‐savvy home than most people can claim to live in. By Dutch designer Frederik Roije and made from wood with a durable coating, it's been designed to encourage breeding and resting for our feathered friends. Roije believes that in order 'to eliminate the estrangement from our origin respecting nature will be necessary [and that by] designing a special place it will give nature its space, even in urban society'. This project is currently on display at the Ventura Lambrate gallery in Milan.
