Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the Hudson Animal Hospital is a 5,400SF full service, state-of-the-art veterinary facility. This single-story hospital is a start-up practice that has been designed with growth in mind. While the project build-out will be phased over time, the hospital includes five (5) Exam Rooms plus a Tranquility/Bereavement Room. The Inpatient Areas include the Treatment Area, Surgical Suite, Dentistry, Special Procedures, and Radiology. This facility includes a Retail Area, Grooming and a Staff Daycare Suite. With its gable massing and deep overhangs, the building evokes a feeling of southern hospitality and simplicity that is in keeping with the local architectural vernacular. Through the use of applied trim and the intermixing of horizontal cladding and shingles, the building displays different textures and materials at a very low cost. The resulting architectural character emphasizes the hospital’s philosophy of quality service and professional care.
