The Roost


Working closely with Dress for the Weather and the Bat Conservation Trust, we designed an extension to an existing home in Rothiemay, Aberdeenshire. The loft space is home to around 2000 pipistrelle bats. The brief was to provide extra living accommodation on the ground and first floors with a unique bat roost constructed in the new attic space. Through research and detailing there is provision for bat access and nesting as well as addressing the relationship between the two sets of inhabitants.
