Location                Taronga Park Zoo, Sydney, NEW SOUTH WALES.

 

Description            Intended as a part of the Taronga Zoo refurbishment scheme, the Roar and Snore project consists primarily of sleeping and dining areas that allow the visitor to experience nightlife with the animals. The project required that the facilities be responsive to the landscape whilst also sensitive to harbour views and accompanies a night-tour of the zoo itself. Eco friendly design ensured.

       

Budget                   800 thousand dollars.

 

Role                        Peter Thompson Architects will be involved in the full design process, from the initial concept to design development, documentation and contract administration in addition to mastering the challenge of inter-state communication with the Taronga Zoo.

 

Completed             November 2008.
