The Cambridge Cat Clinic Cambridge

The Cambridge Cat Clinic Cambridge

The site for this new, cat-specialist veterinary practice was originally a joinery workshop, opposite an open field at the edge of Cambridge. Our client was a veterinarian establishing a new business.

2011–2012
Client: Cambridge Cat Clinic
Project Status: Completed

Gort Scott obtained planning permission for change of use and remodelling of the existing building to also include a new cedar wood screen on the front elevation. Beyond this screen is a generous reception and waiting area with specially-designed furniture, and views back to the open field.  

The main working area for the medical staff is a large multi-functioning ‘prep room’ which is top-lit by two generous skylights. 

The scheme’s design includes many aspects that respond to the client’s considered approach to the welfare of her animal patients and their owners. For example the layout is such that pet owners do not have to pass through medical operation areas when visiting inpatients on the wards, and the main medical areas all connect to one main space to avoid corridors and improve hygiene. 

The building serves both as a general practice specialising in feline medicine, and also as a surgery, with a full operating theatre, lab and diagnostic area.
