Our philosophy is simple. We aim to...

  • Design and build exhibits that enrich the lives of the animals.
  • Work seamlessly with the keepers.
  • Interpret the natural world to the guests in a fun and engaging way.

Our extremely dedicated staff works closely with our client facilities to make sure that the exhibits that they want are the exhibits that they receive. We ensure that curators, keepers, and educators are intimately involved in every step of the process so that there are no surprises. It is our goal that all aspects of the exhibits fulfill the needs of every department of the institution.

It is imperative that we portray the environments as accurately as we are able. We feel that the best way to do that is through first-hand participation. We are a team of naturalists who never miss an opportunity to go on a field trip and "live" the exhibits that we are charged with recreating.

We strive to include those elements in an exhibit that greatly add to a more thorough understanding by the visitors of the ecosystem being depicted. The texture of the substrate, morphology of rock formations, detailed murals, and live plants all serve to further this goal. It also greatly contributes to the health of the animals housed in the exhibit by providing them with a familiar environment in which to live.

We will do everything in our power to deliver the most beautifully functional exhibits on time and on budget.
