6 Awesome Backyard Beehive Designs | Inhabitat - Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building

Just because something’s modern doesn’t mean it has to be complicated. After all, the ultimate goal when choosing a beehive design is making sure it’s somewhere the bees will want to live!

A viewing window lets beekeepers see inside the space, which can accommodate thousands of the pollinators.
