Te Puna ('the spring') is a new café and function event venue with great indoor and outdoor spaces, located in the heart of Auckland Zoo overlooking the central lake and wetlands.
The design of Te Puna utilises a robust palette of materials. The acoustic café ceiling provides internal sound absorption, creating a calm space and insulating against outward projecting noise – essential for the wellbeing of the Zoo’s animals.
With incredible views across the soon-to-be-completed lake area, Te Puna promises to deliver a true Zoo dining and event experience, those dining on the expansive outdoor deck will be just metres away from orangutans and Siamang gibbons as they traverse a network of towering connected aerial pathways.
