Bat House / Chiropteraedas

The Bat House is a space of mediation between the ground and the sky. It 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.
