In an effort to encourage everyday people to admire the biodiversity in their very home, an Amsterdam-based designer and architect named Angelo Renna created 'Lesser House' -- 3D printed homes for insects.
The designs of the home help to create a welcoming space, without compromising the aesthetic of one's home. Arriving in vibrant yellow colorway, these homes have been carefully designed to welcome a variety of creatures, including ladybugs, spiders, ants, butterflies and more. Each home is carefully designed for the species intended to inhabit it, as the designs take cues from the habitats and nests these creates create for themselves.
Both thoughtful, creative and carefully designed, these insect homes aim to add to the aesthetic of one's home, while making it a more welcoming space for all.
