The Alaska Zoo

A site redesign to address access, parking and traffic flow was integrated with a new main gateway building that would combine and expand on existing spaces for ticketing, retail gift shop, educational space, and a multi-function community facility. The building is based on an owner-favored hexagonal design, post and beam construction, with a clerestory for additional light.
Converted from an older exhibit, the Snow Leopard exhibit form accomplishes up close viewing by even the smallest of patrons of the elevated habitat while providing shelter from the elements with its sloped glass.
