As one of the most visited sights in Zurich, the Zurich Zoo has had a continual growth in the number of visitors. To accommodate the influx of visitors the entrance foyer was reworked and adapted to fit the current needs. Architecture fi m L3P Architects designed the new complex, merged facility embracing diverse areas such as the forecourt, counters, visitors’ center, Zoo shop, Zoo café, volunteers’ center and station for the new Zoo tram. Curved walls, display windows and roves combine in spectacular rolling lines. The fl wing forms and a selective light design quickly and intuitively guides arriving visitors. As especially developed acoustic panel made from packaging plywood was put to use in the counter and visitors’ center area. The natural grain reminiscent of animal fur is superimposed with animalistic textures derived from irregularly drilled holes. STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM JAN/FEB 2017
