Five chicken coops around the world
Jun 10, 2023
We've rounded up five coops where chickens rule the roost, from a wooden hut in Turkey to Kengo Kuma's black pavilion at Casa Wabi.
House of Chickens by SO?
Istanbul-based studio SO? built this chicken coop raised on stilts with oak plywood, oxidised metal panels and a corrugated metal roof.
It is in Turkey at Palanga farm, which is run by artist Kutluğ Ataman, and features a modular design so additional units can be added later if needed.

Casa Wabi Coop by Kengo Kuma and Associates
This blackened-wood structure was designed by Kengo Kuma in Oaxaca, Mexico to provide eggs for the artist retreat and cultural centre Casa Wabi.
Timber boards are interlocked in a grid, creating pathways for air and sunlight while also forming nooks for chickens to rest.

Kana Talo chicken house by Chan Brisco Architects
Designed to look like a miniature cabin with pine logs, this project was created for a summer house in northern Finland near Lake Porovesi.
London-based Chan Brisco Architects built the chicken coop in a forest on top of granite blocks to keep its residents away from the cold, damp earth and safe from pests.
