HÖNSHUS-1

Hönshus-1 is a wooden chicken coop designed and built by Torsten Ottesjö on the west coast of Sweden. The house was designed to mimic the way a mother hen spreads her wings to protect its young and is programmed to reproduce natural lighting conditions.  The structure also clings to the rocks in the same manner as the chickens who take refuge under its roof. The hen house is the second in a series of biomorphic strucures built by Torsten. He is inspired by nature, improvisation, and simplicity.
