The Staten Island Animal Care Center is designed to encourage the adoption of animals while creating a humane and controlled environment during their stay. In addition, the program requires unique circulation patterns to provide for the routing and isolation of well, sick, and un-examined animals as they are processed and tended to. The building is sheathed in a highly insulating, translucent polycarbonate envelope that provides four times the insulating value of glass, maximizes the benefits of natural light, and allows for a very light weight structure.

The Palm Springs Animal Care Facility represents a unique public/private partnership between the City and Friends of the Shelter. Located on a 3 acre site across from the City’s Demuth Park, the exterior design reflects Palm Springs’ unique mid-century architectural heritage. While creating an Animal/People Community Center ambiance the facility features a central indoor/outdoor kennel design with public adoption access within an inviting garden courtyard equipped with misters and fabric shade structures. Also included are indoor cat community rooms, special canine “living rooms” adjacent to an indoor/outdoor socialization area, a training room for educational and community evening uses, and a fully equipped clinic for in-house medical procedures. The project has been designed as an equivalent “silver” LEED facility with a special emphasis on water conservation, wherein recycled water from the adjacent sewage treatment plant is used for cleaning all animal areas and for landscape irrigation.

A public building should be able to not have doors. We think of these buildings as technical fragments from the connected public space network throughout the city thatcher in their belonging to the nature of the streets, squares and gardens. From this discussion we propose that the Daycare Center become a transit device and reconcile the city and the abandoned park where it is situated, conceiving it as a place to play and to be for neighbors and children.

An influx and increasing birth rate in the community situated to the south of Vienna called for the creation of more, particularly state-of-the-art child care facilities. Therefore a competition tender submission for a new child care centre was issued in 2008. The existing 19th century ‘Gründerzeit’ school was to be extended by eight primary school classes, a after-school care club and a kindergarten with kitchen.
The association of architects MAGK illiz won the competition and was awarded the tender.

The purpose is to de-dramatize the feeling of being a “patient”. A balance should be found in order to have a medical touch as the “hearing environment” demands to be hygienic, clean… but also human. Besides that, the concept must express professionalism and technical competence but in the sense of “state of the art”.
