An uninterrupted avian premise supplies fresh eggs to residents of Casa Wabi, a foundation that seeks to create a small community of artists on Mexico’s Pacific coast.
Grids made of charred wooden boards form a permeable openwork that protects the feeding place but also ventilates it well, with cavities that the hens can use to make their nests and lay and incubate their eggs.
