Emergency Pet Clinic
This design-build project challenged designers to convert a typical suburban house into a 24-hour Emergency Pet Clinic; more than doubling its square footage and adding client parking while simultaneously preserving the site’s wooded character and improving the building’s visibility from a major road nearby.
With a very tight budget, the architects designed a new form to arise from the old, creating a unified facility with a functional, seamless floor plan. From the main road, the resulting building presents itself as a public space, visible and accessible day and night.
