DESCRIPTION

JMA provided full architectural services for modifications to the Gorilla Habitat to improve animal control and to enhance the visitor’s experience.  Enhancements included raising the Habitat walls, enlarging the Gorilla Research Station while redesigning, focusing on an increased overall viewing of both the North and South Habitats. JMA also implemented a redesigning of the nature trail to include increased visitor viewing of the Habitat along the trail, and a new viewing bunker to create a unique visitor experience with close-up animal interaction featuring an enrichment window.
