Bistro made of containers

Nuremberg Zoo, with its extensive forest park, rugged red sandstone rock formations, centuries-old trees and idyllic floodplain and pond landscapes, is one of the most beautiful zoological gardens in Europe. But as fascinating as ibexes, lions, tigers and polar bears are in this impressive backdrop - the small appetite is sure to be whetted by the visitors. In this case, Matthias Stielfried runs the "Grüne Oase" (green oasis) restaurant in the zoo. Since the beginning of 2019, an ELA sales pavilion has served him for this purpose for his range of drinks, ice cream and pizza.

The ELA solution consists of two brand-new 20-foot ELA premium containers and a 10-foot ELA premium container, also new. Pizza ovens, stainless steel worktops, a dishwasher, a chrome-nickel hand-washing basin and sink, and various shelves are accommodated on 45 square metres of space. "ELA listened carefully to my wishes, planned them precisely, and delivered on time," says owner Matthias Stielfried.

Large plastic sliding windows, which are secured at night by external roller shutters, serve as food serving counters. The air conditioning is provided by a so-called split air conditioning system, which can cool as well as heat. A special feature of the electrical installation are automatic circuit breakers for the pizza ovens.

In order to do justice to the natural surroundings of the zoo, Stielfried had the outside of the plant clad with wood on site. "For this project, too, we delivered the room modules for long-term use with our own trucks, installed them on site by our specialists and handed them over to the customer ready for use," says Harald Denk, branch manager of ELA Billigheim. The cooperation with the customer was very pleasant and constructive.
