Gallery: Architects Design Luxe Bug Hotels For London Parks


Beevarian Antsel and Gretal Chalet

This traditional German chalet was designed by “German Women in Property” to commemorate their recent excursion to London and is built for visiting insects from mainland Europe. Designed as a typical Bavarian mountain chalet, the bug inn will be built from reclaimed bricks to attract solitary bees, rotten logs for invertebrates, louvered boxes filled with bark for hibernating butterflies, a log drilled with holes for ladybirds and eaves filled with bamboo for lacewings.
