The Beehive House family had been living in a very small rented house for several years before they approached us for help in designing their dream home. In their rented house they all slept in one room. So one of their priorities was more space.
They are a very active family and wanted something very original. They were particularly interested in the ideas of improving development of children. They wanted their home to engage their children and to create a space that is fun and exciting.
We started to work together and came up with the idea of everyone having their own space for various activities. These spaces are interconnected allowing kids to flow from one activity to the next. These spaces within the house look like a beehive and thus the house became known as the “Beehive House”.
There are 12 individual spaces for the children to sleep, play and study. They are all interconnected and can be reached by sliding through the connecting holes. Movement within these spaces is completely 3 dimensional unlike a housemaker home where plans are only designed 2 dimensionally.
This home is made from steel and wood. The combination of materials gives it a very modern industrial look with a natural balance. This house shows that with imagination and good design we can create amazing homes that will entertain and support your family for generations.
Beehive House was featured on the Christmas special of Junintoiiro the TV program in 2011 as one of the best design houses of the year.
