Adjacent to the existing giraffe exhibit at Melbourne Zoo, this café offers patrons a rest point on the gardens main drive and unique dining experience.


The new dining area is built amongst the heavy green vegetation with an elevated platform so that diners can interact and connect with the giraffes at eye level of the animal. The slim structural supports for the canopy roof adopt an organic shape to loosely interpret the profile of a feeding giraffe.
