Write Up _ Benz Kew

Write-up: The business of the Honey House mainly targets on a niche market. The Honey Honey is open to the public, but it is more tourist-orientated. Having a cheap rental, low operation costs and not congested roads makes it an ideal location for tourists. It also has easy back access and drop-off/pickup point, free roadside parking via Prince Philip Avenue which is best for coach/buses. In a local perspective like Singapore, people are unaware of how things are made. Building a Honey House can raise awareness of how honey is produced and the importance of honeybees and honey in relation to nature.

Intended use: It is to bring bus loads of tourists into the Honey House with top grade honey from all parts of the world.

Concept for design: Being a standalone building with not many buildings and facilities around, there is a need for a prominent design which quickly identifies that the building is a Honey House. Its exterior design is very similar to honeycomb-which is a mass of hexagonal wax cells. A hexagonal pattern is a signature indication of presence of honeybees. It will give tourists a feel that they are in a "Honey Hive" and their inside the honey storage.

  1. The intended purpose of the building is not very clear. You do not need to go into the details such as drop off point. Please rephrase.
