The Beehouse was built in 2014 as the main residence of the builder and his family. This was meant to showcase a unique building style which allows one to experience nature while providing shelter. The home features an open plan with large glass windows, all of which were designed to allow each person who visits to appreciate the natural surrounds.
The Beehouse residents have since nurtured those same surrounds by planting more trees, striving to become a zero-waste home through segregation and composting, regular river cleanups, and continues to serve the local community of Taytay and Antipolo, cultivating the creative spirit through home-made annual events like the Artis Artisan Bazaar. Its bright and open layout has also made it the the ideal place to book for photoshoots.
The lower level is currently the main residence of the builder and his family.
Visits are by appointment only.
