Hand/Wing is a micro experiment in multi-species live/work space, hacking an off-the-shelf garden shed into a a combination storage for human tools and luxury bat condo. The roof is raised and infilled with chambers, perches, and a rooftop garden of fragrant herbs and native flowers to attract a tasty bug buffet for our furry flying friends. Down below, the human tools for land maintenance are stored in the shed, enlarge in height by a corrugated clerestory and outfited with shelves and a locking door. The structure is raised on stilts above the ground to minimize its footprint.
