Point Vicente Animal Hospital – Rancho Palos Verdes, CA


Point Vicente Animal Hospital is a single-story 6,690 SF general practice hospital for Dr. Cassie Jones on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. The hospital is in a unique and historic location with spectacular vistas of Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean. Point Vicente Animal Hospital’s design was inspired in part by its nearby coastal neighbor, Wayfarers Chapel ("The Glass Church") by Frank Lloyd Wright. An abundant use of glass conveys transparency to bring the magnificent Pacific Ocean view right into the lobby area. The building's composition of alderstone, desert suede-colored walls, classic bronze roofline, and exterior teakwood accents creates a look of contemporary yet understated elegance.
