Up on the Roof: A Red Tile Birdhouse

January 10, 2013

Concerned that fewer and fewer birds are able to find nesting spots in developed cities in the Netherlands, Arnhem-based designer Klaas Kuiken came up with a novel way for them to build homes on rooftops:

Above: The Rooftile Birdhouse, designed after consultation with the Dutch bird association Vogelbescherming, seamlessly integrates a nesting place with a red roof tile. For more information and pricing, see Klaas Kuiken.

Above: The Birdhouse Rooftile comes with a wooden slat basket framed with metal screening to prevent a bird from passing through the bottom of the birdhouse.

Above: For more birdhouses, see “Bodega Birdhouses by Roost” and “5 Favorites: Birdhouses.”
