Akua Danso will need to approve that you worked on “Elephant House” before we add you as a collaborator.

Elephant House

The New Elephant House is located in Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside and was designed to replace the existing enclosure to house 10 African
elephants.

Main design concept: organic shaped “floating roof” that acts as a protective shelter over the landscape of the Elephant Enclosure. The roof made of glulam timber supported by concrete and steel tree columns, is the main architectural design element and forms part of the visitor experience.

The triangular pattern of the structure and roof lights creates a soft dappled effect inside
emulating tree leaf canopy shadows.
