Portuguese designer Luis Porem has created the APA Shelter for Birds. He started developing this project, after received the unexpected visit of a small sparrow outside his window. At that moment he was able to admire it carefully. He showed is white chest while peeking inside the house. He wanted to open the window but he probably wouldn’t accept my invitation. The APA birdhouse by Portuguese designer Luis Porem takes its name from its function abrigo para aves or shelter for birds. Porem designed the ceramic birdhouse to act as a temporary shelter for small birds. The design was created to be used in multiple ways, attached to a wall, on a long support pole, hanging from above or on a table top of other surface. Its form is a simple cone with a large opening that is available in different colors and a small metal twig for birds to perch on.
