About San Francisco Animal Care and Control

The San Francisco Animal Care & Control (SFACC) project is an adaptive reuse and rehabilitation of a historic unreinforced masonry building originally constructed in 1893. The new 65,000 SF facility’s program includes sheltering for domestic and wild animals, veterinary space, education spaces and support for staff and volunteers. The project comprises three floor levels within the existing envelope while striving to maintain the original building character. The interior buildout is pulled away from the shell to expose the masonry and windows. Animal exercise space was carved out at the center of the building and added at a new roof deck due to the limited site. The design focuses on the well-being of animals by minimizing the spread of disease, odors and sensory-triggered anxiety through improved ventilation, centralized cleaning systems, hygienic materials and acoustic separation. The facility was also designed as an essential service building with robust structural and building systems.
