The japanese design bureau Nendo is just refreshingly different. Like in my last posts about Nendo, it’s always about the small beautiful moments that we often don’t recognize, or if we do, we tend to unconsciously reset our minds and forget what we’ve seen. In their recent work, a treehouse designed for the Ando Momofuku Center, a facility devoted to promoting and increasing access to nature activities, you can feel these moments, that make our day so playful and rich. The facility is located in a forest in Komoro City, in Japan’s mountainous Nagano Prefecture. The treehouse is a collective housing for many tiny little birds and one person. On one side, the treehouse has entrances to 78 nest spaces for birds. The other side has an entrance for one person, who can look into the birds’ nests from inside the treehouse.
