The Bat Snack Shop

This project has been developed from an in-depth study on the properties of different Bat species that enable them to exist in their habitats. The design is inspired by the appearance on a Bat with its wings wide spread and provides a shelter that allows Bats to co-exist with human beings. Located within a remote landscape near Erith, Kent  the Snack shop is timber frame structure and is also clad with timber weatherboard (oak) .  A green roof is used on this structure to make it more sustainable and attract Bats which feed on insects hence encouraging them to inhabit the boxes .
