Sacramento Zoo Giraffe Barn

State-of-the-art giraffe housing and care facility and elevated viewing deck for Zoo visitors. The textures, material and details used are an aesthetic gesture to the color of the giraffes. The design intent was to invite the Zoo visitor into the world of the giraffe by placing a viewing deck that is surrounded on three sides by the giraffe exhibit roaming area. Both Precision and Split Face CMUs were utilized for this project.
