Themed Jetty

Our Landscape Architects and Engineers worked in collaboration with Auckland Zoo to provide a long-term solution for replacement of the shade cloth within the eel enclosure. The design needed to align with the New Zealand themed Te Wao Nui enclosure and provide shelter for visitors as well as shade for the eel tank itself.

This ‘dilapidated pier’ concept was chosen, utilising sustainably sourced Totara (naturally felled), which was aged by an artist to provide an authentic look. We worked within site constraints to complete the project with minimal disruption and downtime in public viewing of the enclosure.
