This veterinary clinic is a commercial project in Idaho. Completed in late Spring of 2020, the clinic has a total of 7,300 square feet capable of servicing domestic and agricultural animals. The facility has six exam rooms, a treatment room for surgery, grooming area, boarding area, and pasture. A large exam and surgery room are available for larger animals, typically horses and cows. Oversized low-stress access to this room is via a large garage door that opens into a covered recovery corral. The veterinary staff uses this corral to observe the large animals post-treatment before releasing them into the pasture for further recovery.
In addition to these spaces, the office has an isolated kennel area for animals that may need to be kept overnight or animals being boarded. The clinic also has its own lab, pharmacy, X-ray and processing area, and ICU.
The use of our virtual reality lab was instrumental in allowing the owner to see things from the animals’ perspective. The collaborative process allowed our design team to leverage this input and create a space to minimize stress on the animals.
