The design is the second in Torsten’s series of biomorphic structures that transform ideas from nature and are based on improvisation. His simple concept is also complimented by the more complex idea of programming a natural light rhythm within the house. As hens are so often ‘cooped up’ and badly treated, this amazing space offers a unique alternative for the feathered creatures, incorporating a healthier natural rhythm into their environment.
