Terra Vista Animal Hospital has been serving the community of Rancho Cucamonga and the surrounding Inland Empire in California since 1994. The new hospital operates as a full service veterinary care facility - offering advanced medical, surgical, dental, diagnostics and microchipping services in addition to preventative care for companion animals. The Terra Vista Animal Hospital project involved the relocation of an 18 year old established practice to a new site location prompted by the landlord/developer’s requirement to take the former practice property for another use. The new 3,570 SF facility was also designed to replace the smaller and technologically obsolete hospital with a fresh design to allow the practice to continue in providing its high quality of veterinary care. Our objective was to create a unique modern design that would blend harmoniously into the Mediterranean theme of the existing shopping center creating a unique sense of place, efficiency in use, client friendliness and warmth.
