COED GWERN BIRD HIDE
COED GWEN BIRD HIDE
2012, Wales, UK
The Coed Gwern Bird Hide was the summer school project at the Centre for Alternative Technology. A model making design charette was held to develop initial proposals. Myself and a group of students developed the design to ensure it could be built in 5 days by 10 students with no power on site. It uses locally grown larch to create a sheltered space to sit and watch the birds in the Welsh woodland.
The project gained national press and was shortlisted for the Architects Journal’s ‘Small Project’ competition which you can see here.
Shortlisted for the AJ "small project" competition 2012
