This outdoor enclosure for chimpanzees was CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE’s first ever zoo project in Australia. The blackened X-TEND netting stretched between the timber-clad pylons is very inconspicuous. From their seats strategically positioned at dizzy heights the animals command a fantastic view over Sydney harbour. A “non-climb wall” on the side adjoining the gorilla enclosure prevents the two species from encroaching on each other’s territory.
