Project Title: ENSESSAKOTTEH

Ensessakotteh is primarily a sanctuary for wild animals in need.

Taylor Cullity Lethlean and consultants David Hancocks and Peter Stroud were engaged on a ‘pro bono’ agreement by Born Free Foundation in May 2010 to create a masterplan for a new sanctuary situated on a 77 hectare site west of Addis Ababa.

Enssessakotteh (meaning ‘animal footprint’ in Amharic) is to serve as a wildlife rescue, conservation and education centre. Rescued wild animals reside in large spaces designed primarily for the animals’ needs, nestled within the sub Saharan landscape.

“The jury were impressed with the landscape architects role in providing a short term response together with a long term program to shift cultural and ethical values. Much can be learnt from this project in terms of the delivery and ambition of the masterplan, and on a more specific level in terms of the design of animal sanctuaries and their relationship with the public.”

Jury Citation. AILA 2011 Victoria Landscape Architecture Award Planning
