UK Bat House


Two architecture students from the Architectural Association in London, Jorgen Tandberg from Oslo and Yo Murata from Tokyo have designed a beautiful new bat house in the UK.  Artist, bat enthusiast and client Jeremy Deller verdict: “It’s great, I wouldn’t mind living there myself.”

While we love the sculptural and aesthetic qualities of this object-in-the-woods we can’t help but feel that it’s just a little, well…too much just that. A beautiful object in woods — with bats living inside.
