Entry Description

The Snowpanda House was built for two Giant Pandas in Finland. Pinto Design created a memorable space and service concept for the customer care surroundings. One half of the building is a space for watching the pandas and other has a restaurant seating 100 people, a souvenir shop and lavatories. The pandas well-being was the most important part of designing the viewing area. The Snowpanda House is a unique facility: its Himalayan inspired interior combined with scandinavian simplicity, creates a calm and harmonious space with natural colours and materials.
