The design wunderkids over at Zupagrafika have worked their architectural magic yet again, this time creating small buildings that any hipster nuthatch would be happy to call home. The Hispano-Polish design collective transformed plywood nesting boxes into prefab apartment blocks by stencilling patterns onto them with a LETRASET-like technique (popular in the 1960s and 70s), and adding additional textures and architectural elements for good effect. When complete, the nesting houses were hung on trees to make a fabulous modernist district for local wild birds.
