Modern Chicken House

Now, be honest…wouldn’t you just love to live somewhere that looks just like this modern chicken house designed by the amazing Amsterdam-based Frederik Roije? Upgrading the proportions, of course…

With his complex and stilted “Breed Retreat”, the Dutch designer managed to add style and modern touch to the traditional chicken coop by marrying his progressive design with a sturdy and highly functional structure.

Made of finished wood and with a durable coating, Breed Retreat is a modern abode where nature and chickens can feel at home as it eliminates the estrangement from our natural environment, an estrangement that we’re all witnessing for quite some time now.
