Birds Nest Shelter

Our Handspring Design Birds Nest Youth Shelter offers a creative and original solution to comfortable seating, shade and shelter in open outdoor spaces. Inspired by nature’s Bird’s nest, the contemporary design of this organic shape can be developed and altered to suit specific landscaping projects. It creates a unique and engaging environment which stimulates interactions and conversations between users.

This larger-than-life Birds Nest youth shelter is perfect for urban and rural areas as well as parks, gardens, picnic areas, or hilltops, where it can become a landmark and meeting spot for adults and children alike!

The traditional open style supports safety and security for users of both the shelter and the surrounding space.

Have an existing theme for your outdoor space? We specialise in altering and customising these beautiful structures to specific design specifications to create shelters unique to that space. Read our Royal Botanical Gardens Kew story here.

Each shelter can be left as organic natural wood or can be created in a wide range of colours allowing for bold and eye-catching colour schemes. For example, tough acrylic roof panels can be included to add a splash of colour and provide further weather protection, shade & views. Protected by anti-vandalism detailing ensures that this shelter will withstand every-day use and long-term weathering.

Every shelter is made from UK sourced FSC Oak and Douglas Fir as the main materials, jointed through time honoured traditional methods as well as more modern techniques using steel plates and fixings.

Handspring Design work as a craft-based enterprise with creativity and sustainability running through the heart of everything they do.
