About project

The complex of the entrance lobby and oceanarium of the Kyiv Zoo

According to official sources, the Kyiv Zoological Park is a scientific and cultural institution of national importance, which is located in the centre of the Ukrainian capital on an area of 34 ha.

However, the whole team of AIMM-GROUP considers it to be a special place associated with fond memories of childhood and youth. So we approached with great inspiration the concept of reconstruction of one of the entrance lobby.

The visible space is divided into two parts, which are connected by a common canopy—a pergola. The design of the canopy with perforated panels is visually simplified by elongated proportions of supporting structures, similar to bamboo stems grown together.

There is a restaurant in one of the buildings and a panoramic terrace on the second balcony which offers an impressive view of the entire nature reserve. On the ground floor of the building, we have placed an oceanarium complex. Regardless of the capital’s zoo being one of the largest European parks within the city accommodating more than 3000 animals, it still doesn’t have marine flora and fauna to display. Our project handles this injustice!

The smaller building houses cash desks, souvenir shops, and social facilities, such as a first-aid post and security service premises.

Our concept entails the arrangement in Kyiv of a new type of zoos, which are already being arranged in some European cities.
