Redesign of Kaliningrad Zoo, Russia (master plan consultancy)
Following the zoo regulations in connection with an intended application for a full EAZA membership, the historic Zoo of Kaliningrad (formerly Zoo of Königsberg), is extensively reorganized, modernized and redesigned. In order to create and implement a new master plan with the help of a local architectural company, ZOOQUARIUMDESIGN was asked to support the planning team with their know-how and experience.
Furthermore, the new management of Kaliningrad Zoo faced the problem of a new primate exhibit (approx. 12 M € investment), which had recently be finished but which, due to serious deficiencies, was not capable to house the animals it was built for. Our team was therefore asked to support the zoo management with ideas and a final concept, in order to make the building functional and safe for the initially intended great ape species.
