CVRC is a distinctively articulated design solution for a 9,600 s.f. small-animal veterinary hospital. Site design constraints included a shallow lot depth strung along a curving street frontage with grade changes along its length; with a local design review requirement expecting at least half the lot frontage to be occupied by building. The solution involved pin-wheeling the building around a central hub or drum containing the main treatment space, spinning radiology, animal wards, private offices and building services off in one direction in a two story wing, and three surgeries with their common prep area in another direction and finally the public reception space with associated exam and consultation rooms expand in another direction. The main waiting room is an expansive space with views directed away from the busy public street towards a rejuvenated wet land with a water course along the north edge of the site.
Within the Salem Center Mall, Olive Boutique provides the latest in clothing design and their space needed a design to match. Utilizing local business, Barnwood Naturals for recycled materials, displays were formed using heavy timbers and walls were clad in recycled boards. The checkout counter was also fabricated using re-purposed boards. Some other unique features are cast in place penny surfaces and durable finish flooring.

The repositioning AIA discussion has heated up following this year’s Grassroots conference. At Grassroots last year, AIA National introduced us to consultants LaPlaca Cohen and Pentagram. The initial impetus for the study was a desire to improve the AIA’s communication to the public about what architects do. As we often discover, half the battle in developing an excellent solution involves framing the question properly, and in this instance, the consultants proposed that the “more critical issue was helping the AIA rediscover its purpose.”
