T B A (thomas balaban architecte)将一个废弃的小照相馆改造成一家顶部有四个住宅单元的兽医医院。医院位于蒙特利尔的英里端社区，设计师结合了du parc兽医医院现有的原始表面，运用了宽敞的玻璃隔断和实用的材料，体现了建筑环境的美感。
multidisciplinary firm T B A (thomas balaban architecte) has transformed a small abandoned photo studio into a veterinary hospital with four residential units on top. located in montréal‘s mile end neighborhood, hôpital vétérinaire du parc combines existing raw surfaces, generous glazed partitions, and utilitarian materials that reflect the aesthetics of its surroundings.
T B A根据兽医所的具体需要，对破旧的店面空间和黑暗的地下室进行了改造，使用混凝土墙板和瓷砖保护下部墙体不受磨损。宽敞的接待处允许动物和主人随意走动，而技术空间围绕着建筑中心的循环脊柱有效地组建起来。corian定制的家具与乳白色聚碳酸酯天花板相结合，隐藏了复杂的机械系统，只显示了适度的照明光线。
T B A has renovated the dilapidated storefront space and dark basement according to the specific needs of the veterinary clinic, using concrete wainscoting and ceramic tiles to protect the lower part of the walls from wear and tear. the spacious reception allows animals and owners to circulate freely, while technical spaces are efficiently organized around a central circulation spine. custom furniture in corian is combined with milky polycarbonate ceiling panels that hide a complex mechanical system, revealing only modest graphic lighting.
besides renovating the original two-story structure, the montréal-based studio added another two floors in the form of a delicate extension that inserts itself into the existing steel frame, using the building perimeter as a guideline for the new form. integral to the new design is a central courtyard that funnels natural light into the center of the building and provides efficient access and ventilation for all residential units. the front residence, belonging to the veterinarian, gives onto a large hidden rooftop terrace overlooking the city’s mount royal.
on its exterior, the building is restrained and monochromatic, with its façade clad in a grid of local limestone quarried 50 km away. subtle aluminum details surround windows and doors and finely perforated guardrails fade into the background, while fully glazed balconies are punched into the façade giving tenants added privacy while streamlining the building’s form.
