International Fund for Animal Welfare

Yarmouthport, MA

The new Cape Cod Headquarters of the International Fund for Animal Welfare needed to be sustainable but also respectful of its unique context and geography. This design merges Cape modernist sensibilities with traditional vernacular architecture. Innovative use of simple materials and lighting technologies create an efficient and cost effective space.


This building is LEED Gold certified.
