Five chicken coops around the world
Istanbul-based studio SO? built this chicken coop raised on stilts with oak plywood, oxidised metal panels and a corrugated metal roof.
It is in Turkey at Palanga farm, which is run by artist Kutluğ Ataman, and features a modular design so additional units can be added later if needed.
Timber boards are interlocked in a grid, creating pathways for air and sunlight while also forming nooks for chickens to rest.
Architecture firm Tropical Space created this coop combined with a climbing frame from steel bars and chain link fencing for a couple in southern Vietnam.
The clients wanted to keep chickens at their home in the countryside but also provide a place for their grandchildren to play. It is in the rural district of Duc Hoa, and complete with a network of boxes, platforms and stairs.
This wooden hut was designed by New York studio Architecture Research Office for a house in East Hampton on Long Island.
It features a pointed-domed shape with timber boards clad in aluminium shingles. Interiors are flanked by nesting boxes and roosting perches for chickens to lay eggs and sleep.
Designed to look like a miniature cabin with pine logs, this project was created for a summer house in northern Finland near Lake Porovesi.
London-based Chan Brisco Architects built the chicken coop in a forest on top of granite blocks to keep its residents away from the cold, damp earth and safe from pests.
