Bear Wood, Wild Place

Our Architecture team have worked with Bristol Zoological Society to develop designs for Bear Wood - a new bear, wolf, lynx and wolverine habitat at Wild Place Project in South Gloucestershire, which is due to open this summer. The exhibit focuses on protecting threatened habitats by creating a sustainable future for wildlife and people through conservation and education work.

The project aims to create an immersive experience, so the team had to design the built environment and movement around the space with these at the forefront - pushing the boundaries between observer and observed to create a safe and open environment. Bear Wood will also house a Ranger Station, interactive classroom, an interpretation space and a café.
