The house is positioned on the outskirts of a modern commuter town, and has distinctive 1960’s architecture. It is owned by a professional couple who were looking for a garden with a strong character, which also allowed them to satisfy a desire to keep bees. The design was inspired by brutalist architecture and featured a prominent series of concrete hexagons representing a bee hive. The garden was designed to provide areas where the clients could harvest their own food and has distinct spaces for entertainment and relaxation. It is planted to attract pollinators and to be low maintenance.
