Project Overview

For the 2016 summer, our studio worked with the University of North Carolina-Asheville to build a “bee hotel” near an established pollinator garden on campus. With bee populations declining, there has been a call for the building of bee hotels, man-made contraptions that act as a resting place and nursery for solitary pollinators. Designs for the bee hotel are available upon request. We’d love to see more of these structures popping up throughout WNC and beyond!
