Hospital for Exotic Animals
A “parti“ is the central idea or concept of a building. A parti can be expressed several ways but is most often expressed in the organization of a building and by implication, experience and aesthetic sensibility. It can define describe massing, entry, special hierarchy, interior circulation, public /private zoning and many other concerns.
The parti of this Veterinary facility was unique in that it serves as a specialty surgical hospital to exotic animals. Serving over 200 different types animals and drawing on a cliental the will travel hundreds of miles to this facility meant the experience needed to be intuitive. The building has multiple types of waiting areas to serve its exotic visitors.
This project was accomplished with a modest budget for this type of facility while still maintaining a continuous décor that is easy to maintain.
