the space is a small room used as a laundry/kitchen area. This room connects our customer lobby to our big dog play area. Customers rarely go into this room but they can see and it needs to look nice. The room has 2 solid doors which really enclose it and make it difficult to monitor the big dogs while you are in this room. The room has very limited space and has a step up, into the big dog play area and a step down into the lobby. I would like to use space as effectively as possible in this room. storage for dishes and laundry items and possibly some staff lockable storage areas (lockers??). Due to the nature of the business (dogs) nothing can be to low to the ground or they will chew it or potty on it. I would like my staff to be able to see into the big dog area without the big dogs jumping into this small area all the time. Noise is a concern, so while I want to be able to see the dogs and possibly interact with them from this room, I do not want to be inundated with noise.
I eventually would like to execute this project and possibly continue working with the architect.
This is a dog facility, the dogs are cage free, they can be destructive so the design needs to hold up to animal traffic considerations. The "lobby" mentioned is actually not yet built (it's in process). The lobby is a sunroom and while the exterior of the lobby is designed I have no interior lobby/office design as of yet, this is also something I would like.
Importance are affordability, air flow, ease of design flow and visual stimulation
