The Victoria Wellens Center for the Ozaukee Humane Society is a state-of-the-art animal care facility located next to a busy state highway in Saukville, Wisconsin.
The new facility was designed with a prominent grand lobby to attract interest from passing motorists. Program elements include an adoption center, veterinary clinic, and educational classroom spaces.
The multi-purpose grand lobby has saw-tooth light monitors that provide an ethereal quality of natural light – its adjacent interior spaces are visually-linked to the lobby by glass storefront and doors. These connections provide long sightlines to the outside and contribute to visitors’ intuitive wayfinding.
