The Architect’s Birdfeeder was designed by architect Doug Patt. Back in 2005 Doug had an idea. He always thought that back yard bird feeders seemed clunky and all looked the same. So he decided to design one that looked modern and could be shipped anywhere in a small box and assembled with ease. He and his pal Brian Witlin worked tirelessly prototyping ideas until they got it right. And the Architect’s Birdfeeder was born. It packs flat, requires no tools or fasteners for assembly and can be taken apart and re-assembled with ease. The Bird feeder is designed to keep water out, keep feed dry and baffle the squirrels with it’s locking feed compartment. It’s fun to put together and makes a great contemporary gathering spot for your favorite birds.
