Warre hive.

The Warre hive isn't too popular in New Zealand but is worth commenting on. It is almost like a cross between the Lanstroth and the Topbar hive as it is a stackable box system with topbars and sometimes sidebars in it but the box itself is smaller in volume than a Langstroth. I think the original designer was trying to mimmic the natural bees environment if they had built their hive in a hollowed out tree but still keeping it practical for the beekeeper.
They are generally a smaller hive and would only handle a smaller population, but that could serve as both a positive or a negitive feature
