Birdhouse by Klaas Kuiken
“In consultation with Vogelbescherming Nederland (Dutch organization concerning the protection of birds), Klaas Kuiken developed the Birdhouse; the merge of a basic terracotta roof tile with the archetypal shape of a house. The result is a remarkable product that not only looks good, but also contributes to the increase of the bird population in cities and villages.

Inside the Birdhouse, underneath the roof tile, a carefully designed nesting basket made of wood and bird screen is attached. This nesting basket ensures good ventilation, prevents the birds from moving to other places underneath your roof and makes it really easy to clean the nest after a breeding period.
By installing one or more of these Birdhouse roof tiles, you make sure that our beloved birds are provided with a safe place to stay and raise their chicks. Instead of crawling under the rooftiles to build a nest, the birds can now linger in their own cozy cottage.
The ‘birdhouse tiles’ is new and improved! And can be ordered at Colored Roofs”
