omb was commissioned to develop a new ‘Centre for Animal Welfare’ to serve community needs for the next 30 years. The architecture aims to showcase today’s ‘best practices’ in shelter design, animal care, and sustainability with an emphasis on community education and adoptions. The building is carefully designed to be inviting to the public, while discretely accommodating the functional and durability needs of Animal Control services. The design of the public façade consists of layered screen elements; unifying the building within its natural setting, giving privacy to the animals, and assisting the building achieve its LEED sustainability objectives.
