The preserved section of the former “roofdierengalerij” unveils the inner structure of the mainly demolished, historic building.
Proportions and the spatial context of the former predators cages are displayed by the relief of the plastered facade and colour accents.
The remaining part of the building now hosts a smal café. Sitting outside visitors are sheltered by a pergola construction,
assembled from recycled wooden trusses of the demolished building.
