Nendo’s Apartment is for the Birds

If your domicile preferences are of the avian variety, does nendo ever have the summer cottage for you. The Japanese design firm created this apartment-style birdhouse for the Momofuku Ando Center, a facility in Japan's mountainous Nagano Prefecture devoted to increasing access to nature activities. The bird metropolis gives the avid nature-lover the chance to invade the little birds' privacy. From the inside of the cottage, tiny holes peep into the 78 small houses--cool for us, but creepy for the little sparrows, I'm sure. All in all, a very well-designed way to get up close and personal with some nature.
