Birdhouse Rooftile

Description from Klaas Kuiken

Wait and see what happens was not an option for productdesigner Klaas Kuiken. With his design for a special bird house he hopes to contribute to the solution of this problem.
By applying an archetype house on a rooftile he creates a striking new nesting place for city birds, which is not only a warm welcome for the birds but also more visible to us humans.
In consultation with the Vogelbescherming (Dutch bird association) the design is refined, so the Birdhouse Rooftile not just a pretty picture but also a responsible nesting place.
The birds find their new place under the tile in a specially designed basket. This allows the bird to use its original place under the tiles. Here the ventilation is good so the nest does not get too hot, and the bird is out of range of greedy cats.
This basket consists of a wooden slate framed with birdscreen. This is a kind of comb, where the bird can not pass through. The basket is placed on the roof directly below the rooftile, it ensures that the bird can not reach the entire roof, and makes it possible to clean the nest after breeding period.
The house is a special kit glued to the tile making it resistant to extreme temperatures, so it can not come loose during the winter frost.
