Chester Zoo

Base Camp Kitchen

Paragon Creative was commissioned by BCA Landscapes to support in finishing a kitchen play area for children in their Madagascan Base Camp themed area at Chester Zoo.

We were asked to support in developing various elements within an already existing shell of a kitchen. The client wanted us to create and install interactive elements, scent boxes, thematic facades as well as look at various joinery works to complete the overall look and feel of the kitchen. Our team, working with BCA Landscapes developed some hinged realistic looking log flip panels which contained scent boxes, a realistic looking cooking pot with cooking smell, a fish on a skillet – again with a realistic, all be it an unappealing aroma. Plus, our team created a realistic looking fire stack of logs all aiding in the main point of the area for children to learn through play. The full sensory experience really helped immerse children into this area of play for the client.
