A designer's unique concept turns barren rooftops into homes for wildlife.

Birds of varying sizes will no longer find themselves lost and homeless in the city, thanks to this noteworthy tile-birdhouse concept by designer Klaas Kuiken.

The design mimics the contours of terra cotta roofs and houses a space large enough for a bird to perch and use it as a home. Kuiken writes:

Nowadays birds are not welcome under rooftiles anymore, so they lost a beautiful nest place. Placing a house on top of a rooftile, [I have] created a nice place for a bird's nest.
