the boolean birdhouse in taipei comprises five stacked 'house-shaped' volumes

titled the ‘boolean birdhouse’, this timber structure in taiwan comprises five ‘house-shaped’ volumes that have been stacked to create a series of complex geometries. forming part of a remote flower festival in the taipei mountains, the building serves as a place for rest as well as a setting to enhance the experience of visitors attending the event. its designers — phoebe says wow architects — say that the project responds to the COVID-19 pandemic by conveying the renewed sense of significance that our homes play in our daily lives.

phoebe says wow architects — led by shihhwa hung and phoebe wen — stacked five house-shaped volumes and removed the overlapping area to create a ‘booleaned interior’ with unique spatial experiences. on the exterior, seven boxes and openings allow birds to inhabit the structure as well as humans. the façade itself comprises wood shingles made of taiwania, a cypress tree. the shingles have been arranged with various patterns and bark finishes to look as natural as possible.

the project’s interior has been designed for both relaxation and exhibition in the form of dramatic projection mapping. visitors enter the space through two different entrances, allowing occupants to appreciate the structure’s spatial characteristics. ‘the interior is mainly for sheltering and exhibition, in which one may find a cozy position to enjoy a moment of meditation,’ explains the design team.
