Dublin Zoo Entrance Pavilion
Dublin Zoo is the fourth oldest scientific zoo in the world and among the top three visitor attractions in Ireland, attracting almost one million visitors annually.
A new entrance pavilion was required to service ticketing and retail demands, which could no longer be met by the cottage-style, thatch-roofed entrance lodge, built nearby in 1833.
The beautiful new lakeside location, identified in the zoo’s millennium master plan, was an invitation to create an architectural threshold that would present the zoological gardens as a world apart within the sylvan urban parkland of Phoenix Park.
