NYC is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the United States, but outside of a few dog parks is really lacking when it comes to off-leash spaces for our furry friends. This project is a new vision, redesigning the first three stories of 231 Bowery street to become the new ASPCA HQ. It reimagines a multi-functional office space for both humans and dogs in order to create a one-stop-shop to place for dog owners and lovers to meet, play, eat, groom, and yes, even work. 
Another problem of living in a big city is the lacking of nature and green environments. Which is why this project brings the outdoors inside to create a space where dogs can enjoy the greenery of trees and grass all year round. All the materials used for this space are high durability, water resistant and easy to clean, including high polished terrazzo, waterproof canvas for seating, polished concrete and paint sealants.
