Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod – South Yarmouth, MA


The Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod is an existing full service veterinary hospital serving the animal care needs of the entire Cape Cod area. Because of it’s visibility from the Mid Cape Highway, the main vehicular artery connecting one end of the Cape with the other, a primary goal for this project was to establish a visual identity for passing motorists for both day time and evening traffic. A second important goal was to create a larger, more inviting, Waiting Area for the hospital clients. A third important goal was to ensure that the building reflected a Cape Cod vernacular of weathered cedar shingles, sloped roofs and wood trim. Warren accomplished all three goals with his design of the dramatic glass and cedar shingle enclosed Waiting Area that will absolutely capture the attention of passing motorists, yet do so in a way that architecturally harmonizes with everything Cape Cod. In addition, the project will be going for LEED Certification with, among other things, a green vegetative roof and solar collector panels.
