Like dollhouses, birdhouses have a very gratifying aesthetic in the fact that every part is pared down. Where a human-scale house can be a lot to take in, the shape, angles and details of a birdhouse are available in a brief glance. Delfine Architects, based in Austria, created their Vogelhaus (“birdhouse” in German) using larch wood. Technically, it isn’t a birdhouse, like the Modern Birdhouses we featured in June but a bird feeder. The seed is poured in from the top and is well contained within the feeder to keep other animals from stealing the grub. The bar where the birds perch to eat is also paw-proof, to guarantee that this spot is for birds only.
