Over the course of two semesters — the fall of 2011 and the fall of 2012 — students of Architecture and Construction Management collaborated with the Warren Animal Shelter to investigate the existing conditions of the shelter and propose potential plans for redesign and expansion.


The new shelter should incorporate improved natural lighting and ventilation, adequate space for laundry facilities and more space for the animals' living and bathing needs. The design should consider how to prevent dogs from barking and disturbing one another while in the kennels. Increased storage is necessary for the animal shelter to contain the food and living amenities for the incoming animals.
