Japanese designers Nendo have built an enormous woodland nesting box with 78 entrances for birds on one side and one big door for humans on the other. The treehouse was built for observing birds at the Momofuku Ando nature centre in Komoro, in Japan’s Nagano Prefecture.
Spy holes across the back wall of the apartment allow a discreet view into the 78 bird boxes on the other side.
