The 3 Subtle Design Elements Your Animal Needs, But Can’t Tell You
MA Design continued our long relationship with MedVet to design a brand new emergency animal hospital in West Cleveland. The hospital is nestled into the back of the site surrounded by a lush landscape. Nature extends indoors through a stone accent wall and floor to ceiling windows frame the views of the adjacent watershed. The waiting area is filled with natural light and the neutral color palette is accented with a deep blue that creates a soothing atmosphere for patients and their families to feel safe. Modern design amenities were incorporated throughout the clinic to make life more comfortable for guests. Raised hotelling stations in the waiting area allow for remote work capabilities, conveniently placed leash hooks at the front desk allow guests to safely secure pets, a separate quiet space was created just for cats, and private grief rooms create an environment that strikes the perfect balance between hospitality and practicality.
The hospital offers routine health check-ups with 14 private exam rooms, in addition to several specialty designed exam rooms for isolation and urgent care. The hospital also features the latest technology for advanced veterinary care that includes an Intensive Care Unit, Operating Rooms, Oncology, and MRI, CT, and Fluoroscope imaging equipment. Shell space was created for the incorporation of future Dentistry, Dermatology, and Opthalmology specialty clinics.
Offering best-in-class veterinary care also means providing thoughtfully designed spaces to prioritize the human needs of high-performing hospital staff. The layout provides a bright central cafe with private respite rooms for relaxation and a separate mother’s room. A large conference room provides ample space for training, group meetings, and hosting events. The consistent use of MedVet’s brand and color palette weave each space together into a sophisticated and welcoming place for both people and pets.
