An animal shelter is complex, being hospital, refuge, prison, school, community center, and shop. The program required multiple small rooms configured for both interconnections and separations, which careful zoning reinforces. The main entrance divides healthy visits from drop-offs. There are separate entrances for night deliveries of animals, public access to the community room, goods delivery and access to exterior dog runs. Most rooms require exterior exposures for fresh air, sunlight and access. Sound, safety, air quality and sanitary controls have stringent requirements. A dense, circulation mesh results. To provide expansive places in a compact plan, day-lighting and visual connections between and through spaces are provided.

Prior to the completion of the new St. Anthony Hospital, the South Sound Region represented one of the largest population centers in the State of Washington without a central community hospital. As a result more than 3,500 emergencies and 4,000 patients requiring overnight care had to travel outside of the area for treatment annually. The 80-bed, 250,000 SF full service hospital in Gig Harbor addresses the need for critical health care services within this growing region, and provides quality care in a patient-centered environment that celebrates the local community’s Native American and maritime history, rich natural landscape, and the connection between nature, health and well-being.
We aim for a project with strong identity, where children feel at home as a patient and a child. We aspire to create a recognizable and open design, that has the potential of organizing the complex program in a clear structure. The design offers an abundance of air and light and an optimal relation between inside and outside. The healing environment offers to the children, as well as to their family and staff clearness and quietness, providing an essential support to the nursing program.
Studies by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) show a dramatic increase in obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease across the United States. These have become a national crisis that requires ongoing and immediate attention.
The Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes (TRI) facility will focus on the study of diabetes, obesity, and the metabolic origins of cardiovascular disease – bridging the gap between the research lab and the patient’s bedside and allowing for scientific discoveries and treatments to be developed more quickly and on a more personalized level.
