HARMONY IN DIVERSITY

Animal shelter in Sopot

The brief of the competition requires to design shelters for owner-less animals as the main building function where those homeless animals including 100 dogs and more cats can find a place to stay safe. In addition, to let people know and interact with the animals. Therefore, we create a workshop, hospital, education centre and accommodation for volunteers with a practical and efficient architectural design.

For the architecture, we answered to architectural requirements by creating the shelter with many open spaces to encourage people to visit the animals, as well as to open up the building to the beautiful nature exists in the project site. In the middle of the building, like a courtyard, dogs and cats play, and people and an animal can spend time together.
