The flagship store, Jungle Bazaar, was in need of a new image to promote the Zoo’s mission. EHDD and Schwartz Architects designed an open, airy environment to display products from the Zoo’s eleven merchandise divisions. A main store and children’s store flank an exiting path. A new palette of off-white surfaces replaces the formerly dark, “woodsy” interiors. In the main store, a new skylight highlights a central bamboo environment, which is carried through to a continuous graphic frieze. Brilliantly colored images of plant life and messages relating to the Zoo’s mission of conservation and sustainability are interwoven throughout the frieze.
