Architect and design studio SHH has transformed ZSL London Zoo’s main restaurant (The Terrace Restaurant), by remodelling and extending the 20’s building as part of a three-year, £4.6m project. SHH began by demolishing the 60’s extension back to its foundations and creating a brand new tiered extension to the front of the building, increasing the ground floor area with a new 6m-high, double height space at the front and creating new stairs up to an expanded mezzanine level, as well as a new mezzanine terrace deck and a smaller first floor terrace directly above. SHH also built a small extension to the rear of the building to create new storage space for food. The overall feel of the newly remodelled building is clean, raw and urban in glass, timber, exposed brick and steelwork columns, with a striking ribbed deck ceiling in the double-height extension.
