Modern Birdhouse - based on the mid-century Case Study House designs


If you want to know about the mid-century Case Study Houses in the US, you need to buy Taschen's book on the subject. And if you want one for your garden, you can now buy a Modern Birdhouse - based on the designs on the Case Study Houses.

The Case Study House program ran between 1945-66, producing 36 prototype homes that could be easily and cheaply constructed.  The program was led by John Entenza and featured some of architecture's greatest talents, including Richard Neutra, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eero Saarinen.

The birdhouses here are based on the work of J.R. Davidson, Richard Neutra, and Ralph Rapson (above), made of SmartWood oiled teak, with floating aluminum roofs and a detachable posts. They are shipped pre-assembled (apart from the post) and sell for $195 (around £100).
