Hönshus-1: a wooden hens house by Torsten Ottesjö

Hönshus-1 is a wooden hens house designed and built by Torsten Ottesjö situated on the West coast of Sweden. It rests on a framework of steel legs drilled into rock. The house was designed to mimic the way a mother hen spreads her wings to protect her young.

It is perched on a rock slope overlooking an inlet and allows its current feathered residents a sea view. The house is programmed to mimic natural lighting conditions within the house, and therefore provide the chickens a natural daylight rythym. The hens house is the second in a series of biomorphic strucures built by Torsten. He is inspired by nature, improvisation, and simplicity.
