I had the pleasure of designing a "Bee Hotel" in Manchester on behalf of creative agency Anomalous. The Bee Hotel is a natural environment for bee's within the urban landscape, designed to help them thrive whilst bringing much-needed colour and vibrancy to dark city space.
For the set build, I proposed popping colour tones and hexagonal honeycomb construction which would provide a stylish and on theme home for the bees and the bee-friendly plants. To create the set I worked with excellent prop and set company Toy and Robbin.
This project was particularly rewarding for me as it had a strong community element. I was able to engage an amazing project called Hulme Community Garden Centre for all of the plants and gardening services. Not only did HCGC have amazing nature-friendly plants available, they work with vulnerable people from the Manchester area and the project grew up out of the ashes of the notorious "Crescents" estates in the 80's.
