Pets At Home

Pets At Home is a new build unit on an existing retail park in Liskeard. The two-storey building has been set into the ground with servicing to the lower level off the existing service road. Customer access is at the upper level entered from the existing car park.

The Developer was keen for the building to incorporate natural building materials as a departure from the style of the ubiquitous "out of town" retail units, as a pleasing alternative for this prominent site.

The walls are clad in cedar boarding at the upper level with a natural stone wall which extends down to the lower level. Clerestory windows to the front and rear elevations provide natural light to the inside creating a light and spacious interior, oversailed by a standing seam aluminium roof. A single storey entrance with a feature stone curved wall fronts the building.
