Our client IJbouw realized this outdoor enclosure for the elephants of Amsterdam Zoo Artis. The site is equipped with water, walkways and rock formations. The work took a year and a half for the creation of pile foundations with various techniques, concrete work, applying shotcrete and steel construction work.
This enclosure is a unique combination between architectural design and true-to-nature constructions. To make this possible, various special materials and constructions have been used, such as rolled corten steel and colored shotcrete. A great cooperation between client, architects, constructors, subsidiary contractors and IJbouw has led to this wonderful result.
