in with the lemurs, ZSL london zoo
In with the Lemurs intends to take visitors on a Madagascan journey through a shrub forest where the lemur primates can be found leaping, climbing and doing what they like best, sun bathing!
The walkthrough enclosure has been designed with the orientation of the sun in mind and has ensured that their basking platforms are purposefully located to maximise lounging time.
The building has been constructed with columns of recycled greenheart hardwood and glulam timber beams. The roof and walls are clad in lightweight mesh which when viewed internally almost disappear; highlighting the tree trunk structure, planting and trees whilst replicating an enjoyable environment for the lemurs and a unique walkthrough experience for visitors.
