Nancy Beka is an architectural designer and co-director of Studio Edwards, a Melbourne-based design practice established in 2016 to bring together architecture, interiors and conceptual design with a dedication to pushing these disciplines in innovative and unexpected directions. The studio’s work is defined by elegantly crafted responses that employ inventive solutions to complex situations and challenging budgets, always striving to test materials, construction techniques, proportion and form.

Theo Dales, Johnathon Little and Zoë Little are co-founders of Koto studio. Koto designs modular houses, cabins and sculptural small buildings, with each one drawing inspiration from Scandinavian design and culture. Johnathon and Zoë returned from living on the shores of Norway's fjords with a deep appreciation of the local aesthetic and environment. As the brand progressed, Koto began looking further east to the minimalist world of Japanese design and their focus on social functionality. This is something that has always fascinated co-founder and architect Theo. Koto share their emphasis on clean and simple details that provide a sense of calm. This exploration has helped Koto's designs evolve into the carefully-considered works they are today. Koto delivers beautifully crafted, architect designed, energy neutral homes and cabins. All its buildings are produced to the very highest standards and delivered whole and complete directly to project sites. Every Koto home has been crafted with the utmost respect for both our environment and the people Koto works with.

Suzanne Hunt is Founder and Principal Architect at Suzanne Hunt Architect, a multi-awarded practice in Perth, Australia. The practice’s down-to-earth, client focused, design approach inspired by the Australian climate and stunning landscapes results in timeless, tranquil buildings that are beautifully detailed, environmentally and financially sustainable, and of place. Suzie’s ethos is “Great architecture enriches our lives physically, psychologically, spiritually and emotionally, leaving a legacy for generations to come.”

Pablo Larroulet is a Chilean architect and founder of LARROU ARQ - Pablo Larroulet Arquitectura. He graduated in 2010 from the Universidad del Desarrollo, Chile having also studied at the Politécnico de Milán, and received an MArch in Design and Innovation from Valencia, Spain in 2005. From 2015 to 2019 he worked in Sydney, Australia at Villa + Villa Architects and is currently working in Valencia, Spain with Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, specialising in the development of residential, commercial and interior design projects. Parallel to his work and life abroad, he is in constant connection with the development of projects in Chile and collaboration with various architectural offices.

Marco Lavit founded his architecture and design practice, Atelier LAVIT, in Paris in 2014. He studied architecture at Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris and at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. He graduated at ESA in 2011 with a dissertation on wineries sustainable design. His studio covers a variety of projects that range from custom pieces, collectible design, limited editions pieces, industrial design, scenography, open air installations, interiors design, to houses and hotel design. In 2017 Atelier LAVIT realized an exclusive tree house, Origin, for the Park of Raray Castle, France, and a series of surprising, floating cabins for an hotel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape as well as some private suites such as Cabana in Ibiza. Ongoing projects such as private houses and eco-lodges hotels around Europe characterize continuous research on the theme of prefabricated wooden structures and intelligent design.

Mari Hunt is an Estonian architect, partner and co-founder of the architecture office b210, a lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Arts, a polar enthusiast and a tiny house builder.

Cristina Verissimo is co-founding partner of Lisbon-based CVDB arquitectos and chief curator of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2022. She is also an assistant professor at the School of Architecture at Dalhousie University, Canada.

The Romantic Cabin for Two competition is part of Bee Breeders’ event series focused on small-scale, sustainable living. The competition is run in partnership with The Earth Energies Sanctuary, a 200-acre farm located in northern New Zealand. It seeks ideas for a small, open plan cabin on the Earth Energies property that can provide a comfortable and relaxing escape for two guests to connect with nature and one another. It calls for construction technologies and materials that meet best green-building practices. This is the second competition organised with the Sanctuary after the Tiny Kiwi Meditation Cabin, also currently open for submissions.
