Office, Storage Kiosk and
Gate Keeper's office and kiosk, under canopy. 1936 - 37, by Lubetkin and Tecton,
built as a refreshment bar and intended as a component element in a complete
reconstruction scheme for the North Entrance to the Zoo. Canopy of reinforced
concrete undulating slab on 4" steel columns. Kiosk beneath, and office, of dark
red brick. Low, plain kiosk pavilion of 4 rooms, 4 windows wide; with 2 doors,all
in projecting concrete frames. The counter, finished in cream faience, has concave
east return. Similar plain details to detached office. The 2 component elements are
visually linked and covered by the canopy, which has pierced slits to "eaves" each
end. The design is a development of the 1934 - 38 kiosk and shelter at Whipsnade
Zoo and this canopy concept was further elaborated by Lubetkin and Tecton in their
entrance pavilion to Dudley Zoo.
