The Hive house, situated in Surat, India oozes perfection in every sense. Complex forms of metal with solar sensors contribute to the dramatic exterior. These metal elements draw inspiration from the hexagonal structural patterns derived from nature in honeycombs and carbon atoms. Moreover, every structural feature is well researched and based on the concepts of strength, transformability, and biomimicry. The metal honeycombs regulate the light exposure, thus, maintaining the thermal levels inside the home.
