The Moop. The modern coop for design minded chickens

0 Posted by - - design, gadget

The Moop is a modular chicken coop designed by San Francisco-based architecture firm, nottoscale. For the design of the Moop, nottoscale incorporated principles from modern and prefab architecture and translated them into a smaller scale to produce a functional, compact, and modern home for today’s design minded chickens.

The Moop is compact enough to fit in most backyards while being modern enough to make any chicken happy and every owner proud. A unique modular system combines a chicken coop with integrated runs that can be configured in numerous ways to respond to different site configurations or owner preferences. Each run fits underneath cantilevering nesting boxes to maximize space while minimizing the overall footprint. It is spacious enough for four hens and can be outfitted with either one or two runs.

The Moop is made of weatherproof plywood and redwood strips, which create a ventilated screen around the nesting boxes and seamlessly transition into a solid roof that protects the inhabitants from the elements. Galvanized 19-gauge hardware cloth and secure raccoon-proof latches keep your chickens safe from unwanted visitors. The kit of parts can be shipped to your door in a flat-pack so you can put it together yourself, or it can be picked up pre-assembled from the studio in San Francisco.

Designed by nottoscale architecture and handcrafted in San Francisco.
