Tiger Territory

“Tiger Territory” opened to the public during 2013. This new enclosure of 2,500 square meters is the home of the Zoo’s Sumatran Tigers, a critically endangered sub-species.

Working in close partnership with Wharmby Kozdon Architects and the Zoo's horticultural department, we designed the landscape based on the natural habitat of the animals. This was achieved using plants hardy to the United Kingdom that evoked the look and feel of the forests and glades of Sumatra with the aim of providing the best possible surroundings for the Tigers.
