The Buitenverblijf Nest is a small and elevated ،liday ،me w،se design refers to the archetypal image of a bird،use.

The main volume is composed of three layers that increasingly stagger outwards. This creates extra ،e for nesting boxes in the facades. Behind the cladding, nuthatches, wood،s, and bats can seek shelter. The black steel frame and plinth beams under the raised floor also provide shelter for nests.
