This chicken coop by Swedish architect and designer Torsten Ottesjö is designed to look like the protective wing of a mother hen. Situated on a rocky hillside on the west coast of Sweden, the building overlooks an inlet from the sea. The back of the double-curved structure is wrapped in a skin of rough wooden shingles, while the front is clad in wooden slats with gaps to let natural light inside.
