The new facility is in historic Swope Park. Our design team was very sensitive to the context of the location. The intent was to nestle the building into the existing hillside and utilize the park-like setting to establish the campus feel for which KC Pet Project was looking. Because we were using park property, we wanted to minimize the building’s negative impact, preserving existing trees where possible. Inspired by the KC Pet Project and their mission, every inch of the outdoor spaces was carefully considered. Special lighting, a path around the pond and an outdoor firepit all help separate this facility from similar shelters. From the play yard to the entryway, the Kansas City Campus for Animal Care offers visitors a truly unique and welcoming adoption experience.
