That is a completely unique and beautiful way to set up an apiary. I would love to see how the hives are worked in those bee houses. I would think they would get quite hot in the dead of summer and I don't understand how you wouldn't get bees everywhere as you remove supers or generally work the hives.
However, I'll be the first say I am ignorant to how they function. They've been doing it there for for quite a while for some reason. They are at the least very cool looking. The British shed site gives a good description of what their interior looks like it.
