Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden Entry Courtyard
Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden Entry Courtyard

3. Fromme Design worked with the Zoo’s President and CEO to completely rethink the Zoo’s central entry/exit courtyard set within the visitor center. The renovation plan subdivides the large area into several human scaled spaces related to, emphasizing, and supporting adjacent building functions: gift shop, café, membership, and visitor amenities.

New raised planters provide visitors with intuitive directional cues and seating while clarifying circulation patterns. Canopy trees cast shade over the once sunbaked space. Artful shrub and groundcover plantings immediately introduce the Zoo’s function as an exhibit of flora as well as fauna. Moveable café furniture and planters with seasonal color complete the transformation from paved desert into inviting oasis.
