Located on south First in central Austin, we were tasked to provide a space that functions as a veterinary clinic but be designed to not look like a vet clinic. Using a pre-existing footprint, we made the most of the budget by using an agriculture vernacular that utilized a pre engineered building with a unique pattern of horizontal windows. Two sculptural skylights provide ample natural light for the space and transform the pre engineered building into something more unique. The warehouse like space, created a box filled with minimal program for the owner to have flexibility with their own needs and aesthetic. Low partition walls, skylights, a sloped ceiling, and a mezzanine maximize the visibility and daylight within the space.
