Norman Foster's 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. The environs of the elephant house have been executed by the Danish landscape architect Stig L. Andersson.
