 Design depends on whether you just want a functioning nest box or a separate secureable box that can be used as a broody coop or quarantine/hospital accomodation .

I went for high ridged Alpine chalet style when i made mine ! :)
Hens are followers of fashion and will lay in the box the other ladies think is best !
