Project Info
Hive is conceived and designed as an intelligent, adaptable, and sustainable family home in Surat. The architecture is expressed as an angular V-shaped structure oriented towards the green pockets spread around the house. Inspired by hexagonal structural patterns, the key highlight is the solar sensor-based facade, which lies at an exciting intersection of art and engineering. The unique opening mechanism of the facade creates striking sciography casting patterns that change throughout the day.
