GUILDFORD ANIMAL HOSPITAL
We were given carte blanche to reinvent this animal clinic in Guildford. THE ONLY REQUEST was that the space be fun and not feel like a typical clinic. The original facility lacked warmth and texture, but our team of animal lovers created a veterinarian hospital that felt friendly and welcoming.
CREATING A HERITAGE-INSPIRED EXTERIOR
The walls of the clinic where designed from recycled wood and washed in a bright blue. To get the blue wash just right, the design team painted it themselves using more than 10 different shades to create the perfect antique effect.
HIGH-IMPACT WALL TREATMENTS
Walls and doors throughout the clinic where covered in commercial-grade vinyl, printed in either grass print or large-scale animal portraits. We wanted to make the clinic unlike any hospital space people have ever seen.
INSPIRED BY THE CLIENT’S LOVE OF ANIMALS
In total, we designed the examination rooms, the operating and x-ray room, as well as the facilities, dog-holding chambers and administrative office.
Because the project was completed while the facility was still in operation, construction and site visits where done after hours. This created a few complications, but the team worked alongside the owner to make sure the business would not be affected during construction.
HAPPY PETS. HAPPY CLIENTS.
Since the completion of the clinic, the guildford animal hospital has continued to be one of the leading facilities for care and customer satisfaction.
