The South East Asia Jungle Track, a $62m renewals programme funded through Auckland Council’s long-term plan, is the biggest project in Auckland Zoo’s 100-year history.
Auckland Zoo’s Te Puna Café was built to modernise food service to customers and provide a top-quality venue space. Overhanging the central lake and overlooking the High Canopy habitat, it provides a unique outlook where visitors can watch orangutans and siamangs swinging by.
Auckland Zoo’s new administration wing provides a significant focal point at the Zoo entry, setting the tone for what lies beyond. The building provides a multifunctional space and uses a high-performance building envelope that supports a low energy profile through natural light and passive ventilation.
