Thrive Hive is the culmination of simplicity and practicality, creating a natural environment that is about the wellbeing of the bees.


By using traditional hive weaving techniques within a structural framework the hive provides a habitat perfect for bees, and the conscientious beekeeper.


The bee is no longer cajoled into a home that does not fit a natural form. Thrive Hive is fabricated in a hollow trunk shape in which wild bees build colonies. The weaving creates a rounded form, and is also the perfect material due to the excellent insulating properties found naturally within the structure. The bees are better equipped to survive  thewinter period, strengthening the colony.
