The transparent farm house
The Pet Doctor, led by Dr. Marcy Hammerle, one of the region's leading veterinarian clinics, is building a new facility in O'Fallon, MO. JEMA is the architect and interior designer.
The new clinic will have a wrap-around front porch for clients and customers
Dr. Hammerle was recently nominated as one of just 20 national finalists for America's Favorite Veterinarian. America's Favorite Veterinarian initiative is sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.
The new clinic is 12,000 sq. ft. and will contain surgery suites, an ICU, a radiology suite, multiple exam rooms and support spaces including a bedroom suite. The design is a modern interpretation of the American farmhouse. The entry and community center volume feature a "cut end" that is infilled with floor to ceiling glazing. The transparent "cut end" creates a modern form, allows for an abundance of natural light and creates a "lantern-effect" at night.
View of the "glass end" facing HWY 40/64 houses the Community Room.
