Chicken Coop inside“Just because it’s a chicken coop, it doesn’t mean you can’t be creative,” opined Stephen Cassell of New York’s Architecture Research Office (ARO)—who got very creative indeed in designing a home for a brood of chickens on the eastern end of Long Island. Built for a Hamptons-dwelling, chicken-raising client who had designs on a coop with esthetic value, ARO eschewed “faux rustic farm buildings” in favor of a sleek, compact (60 square feet) edifice, defined by exterior cladding comprised of aluminum ‘shingles.’ A concrete foundation to keep predators out, cedar siding, radiant heating, nesting boxes for each of the coop’s 8 inhabitants, and a hinged door which facilitates egg collection from the outside add up to one fancy condo for these lucky chickens. We just hope doomed factory chickens aren’t paying attention.Chicken Coop outsideChicken Coop exteriorChicken Coops EggChicken Coop EggsARO Chicken CoopChickenChicken Coop landscapeChicken Coop shinglesVia New York Times
