The Bee House opened its doors on World Bee Day, 20 May 2022, and is proving to be a popular choice for individuals and companies alike.
Companies today are requiring flexibility when choosing where to work. Our very own Bee House is a new and vibrant way to work and offers a co-working, office and meeting room option for the modern company.
Repurposing an existing building which has outlived its original purpose is the most sustainable of all construction methods, as it saves high a percentage of embodied energy within the fabric of the building, reduces demolition waste, minimises the need for new materials and reduces the level of construction traffic visiting the site.
Designed to achieve the highest environmental credentials, Bee House is electrically cooled and heated using a green renewable energy tariff. Natural light is utilised wherever possible while smart building technology aims at reducing the carbon footprint. A series of moss walls and living plants brings the outdoors inside.
Bee House has its own sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) that attracts wildlife and helps prevent flooding. A water course previously screened by the parking area has been created into a wildflower meadow, designed to attract Milton Park’s resident bees. A bespoke bee hotel has also been integrated in the branded signage.
Over the years, Milton Park has developed a special relationship with Bee, its chosen spirit animal. The inspiration for Bee House’s name came from the discovery of the what3words square in the building – ///feasted.cloud.honeybees. In the Bee House, you can feast in the Hive Café, work in the cloud and collaborate like honeybees in a flexible workspace with a home-from-home vibe.
