Snow leopard exhibit | Wilhelma Stuttgart

Species snow leopard
Size 940m2
Design October 2015
Status design competition

TVK ZooDesign was invited by Wilhelma to participate in the design contest for a new snow leopard exhibit. TVK ZooDesign was the only non-German team. Goal was to design a new snow leopard exhibit on the same location, but to expand the exhibit also on a steep hill (ideal for snow leopards). TVK ZooDesign designed two exhibits that are connected via a corridor. The visitors can walk between these two exhibits and they can enter a corridor to view the snow leopards from a lower perspective. Special feature of this exhibit is that the exhibit is a not covered with a net and the plantings used are a combination of plants from Europe, Himalaya and plants that activate cats with smells and searching activities.
