Beeworld - Beelieve in the Future



Beeworld is an optimised, industrial apiary based in Felixstowe.
Each beehive sits within a territory that is just enough to sustain it (5 acres). The territories are terraced to match the natural terrain of the site.
The Ground Floor of the building is sunken into the earth to make the complex appear smaller. That part houses the farm equipment as well as material processing and packaging.
The 1st Floor offers commanding views of the landscape and houses the offices and a visitor centre to raise awareness about bees being endangered and potentially going extinct.
These functional differences between the floors also manifest in the material choices of the project too.
