A beehive is a safe haven for the honeybee, creating a fascinating beautiful, hard-working environment which produces delicious food while looking after the next generation. This is exactly what I wanted to create for these clients in this space.
This influenced my design, shaping the room by boxing out walls, creating the central hub which houses the heart of the kitchen.
Making the island in this space a hexagon shape just seemed the natural thing to do to to mirror the rooms architecture. This allowed me to create this hard-working environment which also hugs the family in the centre of it all.
The bench seating is full of storage, the herb garden allows the couple to grow fresh herbs. The venting hob, sink and breakfast bar are all facing each other making the space a social achievement.
The indoor beehives allow the couple to collect the natural honey, an amazing morning treat.
The use of reclaimed timber on the panels, Concrete worktops, and cork table tops, keeps this design sustainable and looks after the environment.
A window seat with its angled sides allows for the adults to sit or children to lounge and read a book while bathed in natural day light. A funky bookshelf mirrors this design.
A swing seat has been placed on the end of the table for a fun element for when the grandchildren visit. A Cork board for pinning pictures and memories too, and a chalk board for the children to write recipes and help their grandparents out cooking.
Overall, I think this design has achieved the hive like traits while meeting the customers brief and looking amazing in these earthy colours.View this retailer's profile
