Masuda Dog and Cat Hospital

Location: Osaka, Japan

This facility faced the same issue many businesses in Japan face, the lack of land.  So our design needed to pack more into less.  In 2,500 square feet this facility has five exam rooms.  With the open structure of the examination area design, Dr. Masuda, a solo practitioner, says he can see over 100 clients a day, transforming his small lot into a high-capacity veterinary hospital.
