PORTFOLIO ▲ C ecil Baker + Partners, Philadelphia, designed the lobby renovation of Ryan Veterinary Hospital at Univ. of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The project called for a new lobby and reception and waiting areas that would be spacious and easy to navigate, while providing a calm, serene atmosphere for pets (and their oftentimes anxious owners). The architects delivered a contemporary aesthetic to their re-design of the existing space, including a vertical, color-changing LED lighting element as a focal point. Wayfinding was greatly improved and rubber flooring specified to reduce noise and provide a comfortable surface for pets. The end result completely changed the feeling and function of the public front of the building. Photo: Halkin Mason Photography 66 COMMERCI A L A RCHI T EC T URE MAY MAY2016 2016
