Middle Plantation Animal Hospital - Williamsburg, Virginia

Metzger Design's latest veterinary design/build project just opened their doors in January.  A result of a major renovation to an existing clinic building (circa 1986), the space had fallen into disrepair with active water intrusion and termite damage throughout the structure.  We were able to salvage the bulk of the structure and layout but otherwise deconstructed the 3,600sf first floor down to bare studs.

This project was as much of an exterior renovation as an interior with updates made to the entire structure.  Due to it's close proximity to Colonial Williamsburg the Client on this project had a strong interest to echo the design heritage of the area.  In response we took a confused, experimental design from the '80's and added traditional forms such as large shed dormers along the long sides of the structure and a wrap around front porch.  Extensive wood detailing, energy efficient windows, louvered shutters, bead board details and Hardi-plank siding complete the look.

The design of the clinic is primarily focused on the central treatment room with easy access to surgical and radiation suites. A continuous lab/pharmacy corridor acts as a buffer between the exam room and treatment room.  The front of house space is well defined with a spacious and inviting reception area with five exam rooms conveniently located along the main entry hallway and separate waiting areas for cats and dogs.
