The Nest Project

The Nest Project is a studio inquiry aimed at encouraging bird life in inner-city areas, making our neighbourhoods nicer places to live and work; encouraging a sense of place for all.

The Nests are designed to exist in the urban environment, easily attaching onto existing lamp-posts and street furniture. The nests are homes for birds but also urban interventions for people; they highlight nature's place in our urban fabric.

The Nest Project is citizen led; it’s designed for citizens to encourage birds to nest in their own neighbourhoods.

Nests start their life in the home, school or office. Participants are encouraged to make the nest ready for birds by working in pencil for a week (the nest's ‘dowel’ is actually a pencil and sharpener), each time you sharpen you're pencil your making more of a home for the incoming birds.
