Bois de la Bâtie Aviary, Geneva (CH)

Bois de la Bâtie Aviary, Geneva


Bois de la Bâtie Webnet Aviary Enclosure Exterior (2)

The kidney-shaped roof of the aviary appears to be ‘hovering’ over the tree-scape, recreating the look of a forest canopy and providing a permanent shelter for the birds.

Consisting of two aviaries, with steel supports and a concrete plate, this unique facility offers a magical new attraction for the city of Geneva.

Bois de la Bâtie Webnet Aviary Enclosure (2)

The enclosure was designed to work in harmony with its surroundings and to create a natural environment and habitat, with the tree-like steel structure enclosed by a very fine Webnet construction.

“Webnet is a high-quality product that is custom-manufactured for each project – perfect for creative architecture. As part of our assembly-friendly rope structure program, it provides flexible solutions.”
 Rudolf Lehmann, Jakob AG, Technical Director
