Welcome to the Beehive. An extension and renovation of a small, two-bedroom weatherboard Californian Bungalow in Coburg. This project is about finding the joy in tweaking a rational box on the back into something more exciting.

The clients, who work in science education and mathematics, wanted a good working home for their family of three robust boys. Their professions prompted us to explore ‘morphogenesis’ – the biological beginning of an organism’s shape – providing an opportunity to relate science and mathematics to the new building’s form and composition.
