Battersea Dogs & Cats Home - Mary Tealby Intake Kennels
The new 2000m2 state of the art intake kennels for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, was a finalist at the International WAN Colour in Architecture Awards and gained a top BREEAM accreditation for its solar control, natural ventilation system, high thermal mass, air source heat pumps and a long, photovoltaic canopy. Completed in 2015 and opened by Her Majesty The Queen, the intake building is now at the heart of the high profile Battersea site.
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home - Clinic Kennels
Four derelict railway arches were refurbished and fitted out to become clinic kennels for post operative dogs. Each arch measures approximately 100m2 in area internally plus mezzanine space which in effect doubles this. All the kennels are constructed using stainless steel framing with glazed screens and resin floors all carefully sealed for maximum infection control. The glazed kennels are arranged down each side of each arch with a central linear island unit housing sinks, equipment, storage and computer facilities. This central island unit also serves to screen off each wing of kennels from each other, which prevents dogs from seeing each other.
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home - refurbished rehoming kennels
