These playful Google birdhouses [1] by Shu-Chun Hsiao [2] re-imagine typical bird dwellings as points of interest in urban locations. Inspired by the Google Maps [3] landmark icon, Hsiao’s modern bird houses [4] mark the places where birds go to rest.

Here at Inhabitat we love seeing innovative new digs for our feathered friends – from pixellated tree houses [5] to adobe tile abodes [6]. Whereas some designs seek to blend into the environment, Shu-Chun Hsiao [2]‘s Google Birdhouses do the opposite. They tag the little feathered creature’s homes, identifying the places they roost so that passersby can take note and keep an eye out for them.
