Bat House Competition

The Bat House is fundamentally a space of mediation between the ground and the sky: a space that reveals itself through the movement of occupants through and around it. The project provides mutual safety for visitors and bats alike, while encouraging an overlap and a cohabitation that facilitate’s education and sensitivity to fragile ecosystems. Formed by a simple horizontal bar and vertical tower, the Bat House addresses the very different programmatic needs of both humans and bats in a single, cohesive and autonomous architectural gesture.
