Gallery: Leading Architects Unveil Luxury Bug Hotels in London


Beevarian Antsel and Gretal Chalet

The Beevarian Antsel and Gretal Chalet by the organization 'German Women in Property’ won the 'Public's Favorite' award after a round of online voting. The design is based on a traditional Bavarian mountain chalet

The five competing firms and designs include: the Insect Hotel by Arup Associates; Brookfield Bug Buddies by Brookfield Europe and the Pinnacle team; Bumblebee City Nesters by Fisher Tomlin; Inn Vertebrate by Metalanguage Design; and Beevarian Anstel and Gretel Chalet by German Women in Property. Each team used recycled and reclaimed materials found around the city and built their respective bug hotel in one of five parks around London. Over the last month, visitors to the parks were encouraged to vote online for their favorite, while a jury of industry experts from London selected their favorite design.
