Auckland Zoo


  • Versatility and knowledge in developing six distinct habitats: The Coast, The Islands, The Wetlands, The Night, The Forest and The High Country
  • Native plant knowledge: installed over 100 native species
  • Cultural and environmental sensitivities

Encompassing a fifth of the Zoo’s 17ha footprint, Te Wao Nui offers both locals and tourists a truly unique and immersive experience of New Zealand’s animals, plants and culture.

Te Wao Nui is a celebration of New Zealand. It explores the past, showcases the present, and focuses on the future – and we are proud to have been involved in this iconic project.



“You maintained a good positive relationship throughout the project duration. It has gone a long way in setting us apart from the rest of the pack.”
