A room with a zoo

The Antwerp Zoo – one of the oldest in Europe – recently experienced a large boost thanks to the completion of the first phase of their renovation and expansion masterplan. This phase includes a new restaurant and artificial savannah. The restaurant forms one of the facades of one of Europe’s largest aviaries.
Visitors are able to enjoy world cuisine while watching the exotic birds riding the back of cape buffalo through a 6m high glass facade.
The design of this project was a joint effort between eld and Studio Farris (BE). The aviary was developed together with Officium (DE)
