An Elegant Home for Birds with Refined Tastes

Ryan Bruxvoort designed a home for sparrows that are ready to set new, higher standards for elegance. He tells Design Boom:

my goal is to create a shelter that compliments its environment while at the same time attracting sparrows to inhabit it. ultimately I wish for this to culminate into a form that shows empathy for the sparrow, in a serene, carefully crafted manner. this led to the development of a delicate, almost fragile look that has been constructed in a manner that affords tremendous structural integrity. this light yet resilient quality of the house is to be reflective of the sparrow itself.

Bruxvoort's birdhouse consists of maple panels cut into 65 strips for the outside covering and 24 blocks for the interior structure. 2 strips of wood veneer help hold it together.

I don't think the environment is that susceptible to compliments.

That's one way to make your sparrows seasick, "swinging in the rain".
