B Hive

A luxury riverfront home for a close knit family of five. The brief called for a contemporary home maximising the relationship with the outdoors and Swan River, while framing views and providing comfortable zones for living with flexibility to adapt as entertaining spaces. The design solution involved defining zones of the home and wrapping the public spaces with the roof which itself spans a 17m shelter. The mitred stone portal frames the view from the interior and defines the theatre of family living. An operable glass wall disappears to expose this internal verandah to the swimming pool deck and the incredible river beyond.
