Last summer we began noticing unusual bird houses installed in elevated locations around Brooklyn by Street Artist XAM. Fashionable high-tech real estate options for our fine feathered friends, the smart shelters are not just another pretty space.  Each aviary domicile is designed, constructed, and installed free of charge – although rumor has it that a broker from Corcoran has tried to rent out one as “a cozy sun drenched studio with river views”.

XAM employs their Constructive Street Design process to this high-strung hangout in Manhattan  and calls it CSD Dwelling Unit 3.0. It is equipped with a solar panel, a rechargeable battery and a LED porch light that lights up at night to attract insects. Additionally it has a food storage area, passive ventilation, slopes to aid in drainage, and a “green roof” system with angles that cut down on wind resistance and create more stability for the home.
