The mission of Wild Care is to help injured and sick wildlife through rehabilitation. Located in Eastham, they are focused on educational outreach, advocacy, and conservation to help prevent injuries and protect the wildlife. Wild Care wished to create a cohesive plan to expand their campus to address the needs of the wildlife and to provide educational opportunities for the community.
SV Design conducted studies to further understand the property allowances and the constraints of the flood zone where the new building will be located. Our team designed a modest, freestanding Cape Cod shingle-style structure that will be home to the organization's new welcome center and will maximize the available footprint. An additional room will have lofted storage and will provide space to prepare meals and medications and to wash the animals and cages. Decks with ADA compliant ramps connect the new building to the main building and barn that house the animals and treatment rooms. In response to the flood zone, SV Design elevated the building on piers. The new welcome center will provide a vibrant refreshing space and will be a focal point of Wild Care's campus.
