Not only were the species demanding, particularly the alluring polar bears, but the enclosure itself held historical significance, imposing limitations due to the requirements of historical restoration. Adhering to these restrictions, we reimagined the old, historic facility as a modern habitat capable of accommodating a mixed group of polar bears.
The habitat, split into two areas, provided the flexibility necessary for a mother bear to safely and peacefully rear her cub, meeting their unique needs.
The ability to open or close different sections of the habitat offered improved management, diversified options for the animals, and empowered them to make choices.
Considerable attention was directed towards enhancing the visitor experience. Situated at the entrance of the zoo, we aimed to design something distinctive and highly appealing. This included ample seating, diverse viewing opportunities, educational entertainment, keeper talks, and a training cage.
The project was carried out in cooperation with the architectural studio "Bud Cud."
Designing the Warsaw Zoo project presented a fresh challenge.
