McGregor Blvd. Veterinary Clinic
Transforming a veterinary practice into a local architectural landmark.
McGregor Blvd. Vet Clinic is a local landmark located along the charming old-Florida McGregor Boulevard featuring kenneling facilities, surgical spaces, and doctors’ offices. The first floor of the clinic is a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic, while the second floor provides administrative offices and a luxury pet daycare complete with play areas and an indoor grass area. Inspired by the surrounding native landscapes, our designers conceptualized a design that connects modern elements with traditional Florida architecture.
The clinic maximizes the use of sunlight by being 100 percent daylit resulting in superior energy-efficiency, as well as all the associated wellness benefits of natural light to all animals and staff. Thanks to the windows-in-every-room design, our furry friends and their owners feel less confined and are more at ease during the mutually stressful experience.
Designed with sustainability in mind, the clinic features LID storm water management, a rooftop rainwater irrigation system, and a bioswale filtration for stormwater runoff. The height, scale, and color palette of the building was inspired by the adjoining historic McGregor Boulevard which is lined with miles of 50-foot tall royal palm trees. To further drive the exterior design, the build blends glass, metal, concrete, and natural Florida landscaping to redefine the standard for veterinary clinics. So much so, in 2017, McGregor Blvd. Veterinary Clinic won the DVM Veterinary Hospital of the Year award.
