Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod - Rauhaus Freedenfeld & Associates Architects

Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod – South Yarmouth, MA


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 its visibility from the Mid-Cape Highway, the main vehicular artery connecting both ends of the Cape, a primary goal for this project was to establish a visual identity for passing motorists in both daytime and evening traffic. A second important goal was to create a larger, more inviting waiting area for 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. rfa accomplished all three goals with the design of a dramatic glass- and cedar shingle-enclosed waiting area that captures the attention of passing motorists in architectural harmony. In addition, the project pursued LEED Certification with a green vegetative roof and solar collector panels.
