In this project the construction and operation of a modern small animal clinic is planned. During the planning stage, emphasis was placed on functionality and shortening of working distances, as well as comfort for patients, patient owners and the clinic staff. Therefore, a one-storey room concept for veterinary clinics, which is common in the Anglo-American language area, was applied. The spacious, open waiting room is lined by the outpatient clinics, which represent the interfaces to the rest of the clinic via a central supply corridor. The inner rooms are naturally lit by glazed atria. The modern medical equipment allows for x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopies, sectional examinations (CT and MRT), laboratory diagnostics, oncological treatments as well as classical and minimally invasive surgical interventions. On the upper floor there are office and seminar rooms. The translucent façade of folded perforated sheeting envelops the entire building as well as the green open space on the roof and gives the complex its significant figure. The association of an aviary is no coincidence, but a central component of the functional and architectural program.
