Bat House

Bat House, London Wetlands CentreDesigned by Jorgen Tandberg and Yo Murata, the Bat House is a purpose-built structure to attract roosting, breeding and hibernating bats.

 

Competitors were asked to design a purpose-built structure to provide the maximum diversity of specialised features to attract roosting, breeding and hibernating bats, allowing the possibility for visitors to engage with the bats and learn more about them.

Jorgen Tandberg and Yo Murata were selected as overall winners and their Bat House was built at the WWT London Wetlands Centre. Their scheme was described by the judges as being 'beautiful, poetic and unexpected, combining state-of-the-art technology with a rural and romantic aesthetic.'
