Appreciation towards Jonathan Clark Architects for providing the following description:

项目坐落于伦敦泰晤士河南岸的郊区巴特西(Battersea),项目场地原是温莎慈善机构的基地,现如今增建了1000平方米(10750平方英尺)的犬舍以及动物收容中心。巴特西猫狗之家由Jonathan Clark Architects事务所操刀,康沃尔公爵夫人资助,目前已于2020年春季竣工,并于2020年12月9日正式开放。

Completed in Spring 2020, and officially opened by the Duchess of Cornwall on 9 December 2020, this is a 1,000m2 (10,750ft2) new-build kennels building and intake centre at the Charity’s Old Windsor site.

Surrounded by mature trees and built on Green Belt land, this building takes a contextual approach to it’s surroundings by blending in within the landscape. Kennels face out to an external paddock to the east and a planted retaining wall and slope above to the west. Paddocks, surfaced in artificial turf with areas of sand and bark, will incorporate sensory enrichment for dogs in the form of tunnels, mounds and agility equipment.

External runs are visually separated by solid walls to reduce stress in dogs, and are protected from external elements by overhanging eaves to improve comfort. The design of the proposed kennel blocks with the double pitched roof form was determined by the desire to provide natural ventilation and light to the kennel blocks.

The kennels are separated into four blocks, each housing 6 dogs to reduce the spread of infection. An ISO block is also provided with 3 kennels, each with a run and access to a dedicated secure paddock. There is a separate Maternity and Puppy unit at the south end of the site which contains 4 large sub-divisible kennels. The total capacity is therefore 31 dogs.
