Apple Valley Animal Center
Apple Valley, California
This 36,000 sq. ft. Southwestern eclectic style offers a curved sweeping front glass to mimic the Town of Apple Valley Civic Center. The shelter includes a cat area, a bright sun lit lobby, and a spacious courtyard. The design includes code enforcement as well as space for the addition of a future veterinary clinic. The shelter is located in the high desert of California and subject to harsh climate extremes. As such, the U-shape of the building creates a courtyard which provides protection from wind and dust storms and mitigates noise.
