The Nendo Bird-Apartment is such an impressively large birdhouse that it approaches a human scale. In fact, it might surprise you to learn that one of the inhabitants of this treetop dwelling could actually be a person.
An iconic form of a simplified pitched roof home was chosen as the structure to incorporate so many little condos for lovely winged occupants. There are 78 roosts in total and all of them have round open entries off of the same facade. Each one is accented with the quirky inclusion of an A-frame overhang.
The depth of the Nendo Bird-Apartment might first have stumped you. Indeed, there is a gaping space behind the nesting niches. It can be accessed by ladder and entered through a person-scaled porthole. It's a cozy alcove with tons of tiny peepholes that peer into the birds' different rooms.
