BIA is developing a new central entrance complex for Zoo New England’s Stone Zoo in Stoneham, MA. The zoo is currently undergoing several improvements and the new Welcome Plaza will bring together several amenities that are currently scattered around the zoo grounds. The entrance will provide visitors with a new orientation point to start their visit, featuring a new ticketing operation, gift shop, restrooms, and outdoor spaces for groups to gather. Wood framed pergolas and decks are utilized to create a welcoming entrance as well as to organize a series of modular structures that will contain the program spaces. This project is part of a long-term capital renewal campaign to revitalize both the Franklin Park and Stone Zoo facilities.
