studioHub Architects are the prime Consultant for the design and build of a new BCSPCA in Squamish. Located in an existing building, this facility will provide an animal shelter to the local community, with priority care and comfort for cats and small animals. A large community rental space has been incorporated into the facility for community outreach, parties, cat yoga and other gatherings.
Special care was taken to maximize natural light through clerestorey windows in the cat rooms as well as special light fixtures to mimic the circadian rhythm of the animals amongst other specialized technologies incorporated throughout. The colour scheme is bright and aligns with the BCSPCA colours to create a warm and inviting space for staff, the public and the animals. Innovative wall treatments of large format black and white photos are hard waring and easy to clean surfaces.
