Video: The Hive Graffiti Apartments by ITN Architects


The concept of graffiti themed building is not a new one, with countless buildings around the world with walls filled top to bottom with aerosol art. But a building with graffiti as an integral part of the structure with graffiti themes carrying through the aesthetics of the entire design, from windows to ceiling, furniture to materials, now that is something that is truly unique. Zvi Belling from ITN Architects linked up with long-time friend and  graffiti artist Prowla to design a home for themselves with this concept in mind, and the end result is The Hive Apartments located in Collingwood in Melbourne, Australia.

In this video we take you on a tour through the building with Zvi, highlighting some of the building’s beautiful details while also giving an insight into how much effort it took to build something this unique.

  4. Some people might be turned off by the loud and glaring colors of the graffiti. But it is still art despite us being to each his own. I admire it, but I won't be bothered to see it everyday as it grows to be a consequence.
