Architecturally Upgraded Cuckoo Clock

via Yanko Design

For ages now, the cuckoo has resided in a traditional bungalow made of wood with a gable roof, probably a chimney, and ornamentation around like trees, rocks, or the rare waterfall, but not anymore. Aptly titled the “Cuckoo Block”, Guido Zimmermann gives the bird a space upgrade, with beautifully contemporary brutalist apartment buildings.

With its concrete makeover, these new clocks fit well into urban homes, because they too are urban homes. Taking inspiration from Brutalist and Bauhaus architecture, the Cuckoo Blocks series feature miniature versions of the Glenkerry House and the La Flaine ski resort, aside from Zimmermann’s own creations. Just like the original cuckoo clocks of Black Forest, Germany, these houses too come with stunning levels of detail, from painted details of apartments through the windows, to even satellite dishes near balconies… and yes, there’s obviously a mechanical cuckoo too!
