Primate park Apenheul had been looking for a new destination for an empty building for some time. DST was commissioned to draw up a plan.
Learning about monkeys by acting like monkeys.
We transformed the building (and the surrounding area) to the Monkey House. A place with a jungle gym where children of all ages can clamber and climb like monkeys. And where they can learn about monkey behaviour at the same time: how the animals eat, sleep, and chill. The kids identify themselves with the monkeys of Apenheul in a playful manner, and they learn a lot by doing so.
Without effort, children learn much about monkey behaviour.
Since the spring of 2015
The Monkey House opened to the public in the spring of 2015. In an in-house survey conducted by Apenheul, visitors gave the Monkey House an average rating of 7.9 out of 10.
