Coop Co-op

Type:         Residential - Outbuilding
Size:          150 SF
Status:      Completed 2023
Role:        Studio Becker Xu - Design & Construction

An outbuilding for chickens is organized around moments of collective inhabitation composed on a 2x4 armature.  An abstract composition of forms animate each of the coop’s four unique faces, bringing dimensionality and functionality to conventional wood-framed walls.  A protected run, elevated henhouse, nesting boxes, roosting bars, and feed & tool storage together form a tableau of a day in the life of a hardworking hen.
