Maybe you are interested in the Delon's hive, also called Alpine hive.

There is some information about the hive here: http://warre.biobees.com/delon.htm

And this video shows a Russian apiary with the Alpine hive. Nice video and it shows some tricks that are useful for all beekeepers, too.

I start doing these as that guy from Russia,I love these small boxes and frames.I wish I understand Russian more.
do you know if you have to use stainless steel wire.?for frames. Is galvanized ok.
My top is insulated pretty good as roger delon suggesting so hope not much condensation is going on.
Its my first year and bees did great through winter .

I have 12 delon hives, 8 currently occupied this winter. I use stainless steel for the frames. Don't know about using galvanized.

What size are your supers? Are they Dadant medium supers or Langstroth shallow supers?

Fascinating video. I don't know any Russian. Other than using supers instead of 220mm for height, how is your system different from Delon's?
Размер одной надставки 108 мм ,всего 12 шт- 1 улей.

Translates into: "The size of one super is 108 mm, a total of 12 1 piece-hive."
Thank you Bernhard! And now that I understand the answer, thank you pchelhom. Bernhard, the translation of Lupanov where he explains his giant cube hive, with its three entrances in the front center panel... it is impossible for me to understand. Except that the three entrances are all in the center front panel. Did Lupanov explain his reasons for the way he did the entrances?

I love Delon's bottom/landing board concept (page 7&8)! Very elegant.

Нами открыт способ ,который позволяет избегать застройки-склеивания сотами меж рамочного пространства между корпусами и застройки восковыми перемычками подкрышечного пространства .Два продольных паза шириной - 9.5мм,глубиной -5 мм в верхних планках рамок, решают эту проблему.
Если такие планки с пазами прибить вертикально к стенкам корпуса Warre напротив торцов сотов или сделать такие пазы в стенках ,то пчелы не застраивают восковыми перемычками пространство между сотом и стенкой корпуса.
