This stackable honeycomb structure, designed and built in Belgium, will give festival lovers all around the world the sweetest dreamzzz…” – B-AND-BEE
As the hexagon-shaped modules of the B Home are stacked, they begin to resemble the honeycomb of a beehive, and could potentially be used shelters, perhaps in disaster relief situations. As bees know, the hexagonal design allows for more enclosed space using less materials energy. Together, the units would form strong, interconnected structures.” –
suitable for a wide variety of environments, the modular ‘hivehaus’ designed by barry jackson is based on the hexagonal honeycomb structures built by bees. the compact living space is constructed from identically proportioned ‘cells’ that can be joined together by any of their six sides to create a connected cluster or ‘hive’. this system offers a high level of flexibility and enables a bespoke expansion of the house as it grows with the individual users requirements. each piece has an internal floor area of 9.3m2 and is designed to be used as a specific work/live space. i.e. office, lounge, kitchen, bedroom or bathroom cells all have uniform internal partition walls with or without pocket doors that can be added or removed as needed.” – designboom
