Welcome home swallow!

 

The Groeseind district in Tilburg has traditionally offered 'shelter' to large groups of swifts. But where were these small and unobtrusive birds when a large part of the neighbourhood was demolished and the new building started?

 

Commissioned by Hurks real estate development, we have designed a special front to make the breeding sites of the birds clearly visible: the Zzwerm, a recognizable image of a swarm of flying birds. 

The Swarm and its installation meets all the requirements of the Netherlands Bird Protection Service and the ecologist of the municipality of Tilburg.
