Public Work

Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter

The animal shelter design involved creating a building and site that met  the differing needs of the public, staff, volunteers and animals.  Care was exercised to develop a progression of public to private spaces for the people and spaces for people and animals.  Located in a residential neighborhood the traffic and noise of the shelter could not intrude on the comfort and privacy of the neighbors. The building was brought in within a very tight budget and built on schedule.
