Most of us probably don’t give a second thought to the sound of birds in the morning. But while a lot of us don’t seem to think much about bird populations, within the urban settings, the bird populations are actually shrinking.Given that the numbers of birds in an urban space were going down, one product designer from The Netherlands, Klaas Kuiken, was inspired to get creative and do something about it. Kuiken then designed the Birdhouse Roof tile – something to replace standard ceramic roof tiles.
The idea behind the Birdhouse Roof tile is to provide a nesting place on your roof for birds. It is directly placed beneath the roof tile, and this location provides plenty of ventilation for nesting birds, as well as cover from potential predators.
