Holt Renfrew Bee Hotel   Bee Hotel Designed and Built for Holt Renfrew   Holt Renfrew asked Sustainable to design and build a Bee Hotel for their flagship location at 50 Bloor Street West. As part of Holt Renfrew’s H Project, this design follows their 2015 efforts which raised $100,000 in support of Pollinator Partnership Canada.  Using reclaimed shipping pallets, floor joists from a home renovation, and a stain to match Holt’s signature magenta, this installation provides both the food and shelter for our native pollinators. Neighbouring office towers and residences now enjoy a view down onto a rooftop that provides a refreshing sight from the gravel and mechanical systems that otherwise prevail. A careful selection of wildflowers was chosen to attract pollinators, compliment the signature magenta colour of the structure, and provide a consistent bloom throughout the summer.
