At Worldwide Zoo Consultants LLC, we take a lot of factors – and more – into every aquarium design we participate in.Whereas According to key principles of Feng Shui, when an aquarium is placed into a room it attracts positive energy into a place. This is because an aquarium incorporates all five elements of water (either fresh or saltwater), wood (in the form of plants and/or driftwood), metal ( the steel structure it’s built around), earth (the sand bottom), and fire (the bright colours of the fish, and the lighting used).
As with most projects, the aquarium design that you choose will mostly depend on personal preference, objective, budget, and the amount of allocated space that is available. That being said, the importance of visual communication remains the same regardless: This gives the visual cues relating to the message that the aquarium itself seeks to portray.
For example, is its function purely decorative or more focused towards environmental awareness and education?
Some of the most common aquarium design themes include:
These different types of aquarium design don’t even take into account shapes and styles (e.g. cylindrical shapes, room dividers, in-wall); the types of material to use (e.g. transparent windows in glass vs. acrylic); the space & location of the filtration system, or the cabinet considerations.
All of these different themes, factors and considerations can be a lot to take in, and choices can become overwhelming. Which is why we’re so good at what we do: Our team of experts takes all the mind-boggling factors into consideration for you, and streamlines options for bespoke aquarium design.
Better still, we take it one step further and provide the expertise needed to ensure that everything from design to implementation and after-care is taken care of too!
