Werribee Open Range Zoo Arrivals Precinct

Role: Interpretation and retail design of Werribee Open Range Zoo Arrivals Precinct, with Motherworks and Haskell Architects.

Client: Zoos Victoria, 2013-14.

The new arrivals precinct and retail space for Werribee Open Range Zoo caters for a larger numbers of visitors, reducing ticketing times and offering a greater sense of anticipation and excitement.

The project involved redesign of the WORZ entry precinct including new car parks, entry and ticketing area, landmark artworks and retail design. My role was to incorporate interpretive elements into the arrivals precinct design that communicate key conservation activities undertaken by the zoo, including the Melako Beads for Wildlife project and the Eastern Barred Bandicoot conservation program. Using a range of media including artworks and theming, the area orients visitors to the the zoo’s open range adventure activities emphasising the theme of ‘mobs, flocks and herds’.

Project partners: Led by Haskell architects in collaboration with Motherworks.
