nendo has conceived a tree house ‘bird-apartment’ structure which is intended for use by one person, and / or multiple birds. developed for the momofuku ando centre – committed to promoting access to nature – in the forest of komoro city in japan’s mountainous nagano prefecture, the dwelling takes on the typical iconic house profile, divided in two. one side features 78 nest spaces for birds, while the other has an opening for one person to enter and peer into the birds’ nests from inside the tree house.
