If buildings in European cities get demolished or renovated there is a big chance that a habitat of bats is disrupted. The Bat Pole offers a temporary home for displaced bats and helps to avoid delay in construction projects by offering an alternative accommodation for this protected species. At the same time the Batpole points out the presence of bats in the urban biotope.

On the 27th of May we received the first “Made in Maastricht Award” from the mayor of Maastricht: Annemarie Penn-te Strake, for our design of the Batpole during the Design-Day event.
