Furniture, kitchen and door frames had been designed by Fujimori and were developed by Dominik Petz/Baukunst with Ecker GmbH.  Pillows and textile designs were created for Storkhouse by Angelica Steudel/AS WORKS. Steudel is also a contributor to the Comme des Garcons fashion label. The distinctive hand-crafted black plates and cups are creations by Paris-based Setsuko Nagasawa.

Storkhouse is already home to storks that nested for the first time during summer 2012 while the building was still under construction. Every year they leave at the end of August, spend their winter in Africa and return to Raiding  in April.
