“The Hive” is a multi-use project exploring the idea of architecture as a canvas, in both the literal and figurative sense. Among the uses for the complex are, galleries, workshops, studio spaces and even a test kitchen, all places where creatives can produce and display art in whatever form that takes. The architecture also acts as a literal canvas in which street artists can paint on modular panels that are then added to the building.
Hexagonal modular panels are placed into a frame allowing spaces to be customised. If a studio space required more light, for example, window panels can be placed into the frame.
