Elephant House

© Zoologisk Have

Copenhagen's Zoo in Frederiksberg is one of Europe's finest zoological gardens and has a new state of the art elephant house.

Norman Foster's Elephant House has two large domes in the roof. The house is partially submerged in the ground, and the domes allow lots of daylight in the stables.

The basic idea has been to make the new house light and welcoming, unlike many other elephant houses. A pool constitutes the boundary between the Zoo and Frederiksberg Park where the public may enjoy watching the elephants.
