Life in the city is complicated. Basic necessities such as housing are subject to complex and absurd obligations. Freedom is reduced depending on what you have or need.
Birds don’t pay the rent. They settle into a place and use the nearest resources. Their nests form part of nature. Learning from them, we decided to build the Nest House, a simple metal and rope structure completed with natural materials such as leaves and branches.
It doesn’t take up room, it hangs from a tree with a thick tape so as not to harm it. Once installed, it can be used as an observation point or as an essential habitat where to spend the night.
The Nest House allows us a perception of the natural space, as a set for animal, plant and human life.
Birds make nests wherever they want to, and using the closest available materials they integrate into the landscape in a natural way. Inspired by birds, House Nest is a simple structure made from metal and string which can then be filled with natural materials, sticks, leaves…etc. No territory is occupied as this house hangs above ground level from by a thick chord so as not to damage the branch. Once installed it can be used as an observation platform or and essential habitat in which to spend the night. The House Nest allows natural space to be perceived and used as a scene for animal, vegetable and human life.
