The Spalding Animal Hospital is an adaptive reuse of an older office building, in which we prioritized keeping the original shell while updating to the standards of the near future. The alterations we made to the existing shell create a new building where even the curves and edges are responsive to the landscape and street conditions. Primary circulation through the hospital stems from the central spine we created to run the full length of the building. The interplay between primary and secondary circulation allows for smooth transitions and flow throughout the building, due in-part to the careful attention placed on providing fully operable spaces where gurneys can easily perform full rotations. The hospital’s processional space, connecting the main lobby to the operation and grieving spaces, and examination rooms are heavily exposed to natural lighting through large glass windows, creating an uplifting and inviting atmosphere. We sought to create a space that was beneficial and inviting to not only the human visitors, but their animals as well. For this reason, we provided spacious dog and cat kennels that allow the animals to roam comfortably. Most doors and windows within the hospital consist of glass, which lowers the stress levels of our animal visitors. Functionally, the hospital houses eight separate HVAC systems, each adapted to ionize and purify the air of the building. Spalding also houses our fully designed ICU and dental suites, as well as a pressurized surgical suite that filter clean air in, yet isolate contaminated air away from the rest of the hospital. The end result we created has received large amounts of craze for the level of care we put into not only the built design, but also the level of care with which we craft a positive experience.
