Gort Scott completes feline veterinary practice – The London Cat Clinic

London Cat Clinic

Dalston-based practice Gort Scott has completed a characterful and high quality feline veterinary practice in Bermondsey, London.

London Cat Clinic

The London Cat Clinic offers a wide range of facilities, including a full-operating theatre and lab, as well as a range of diagnostic imaging methods. A clean, contemporary aesthetic is carried through the efficiently planned space, reflecting the client’s cutting edge approach to veterinary medicine and maximising the potential of the modestly sized unit. Glazed internal screens and translucent polycarbonate panels bring light deep into the floor plan, providing hints of activity from the practice’s public facing areas.

A bold use of colour creatively reinforces the new company’s identity throughout the premises and highlights key features. The innovative design of the reception area uses decorative timber and white laminate panels applied to blue painted walls. Bespoke birch plywood joinery sub-divides the space.

The scheme is driven by careful consideration of the welfare of feline patients and their owners, reflecting the client’s core values. The design works hard to ensure that cats and their owners are at ease, including bespoke elements like the integrated ‘cubbies’ for cats to climb into.

Fiona Scott at Gort Scott said:
“The London Cat Clinic is the second specialist cat clinic that we have designed for an independent practitioner with very different values from the large chain and franchise vet practices. This is a new vet practice, which has the experience and the welfare of the animal and its owner at heart. This was an important driver for the design, informing the appearance and the sequence of spaces. It is great to see independent businesses such as The London Cat Clinic, reinvigorating this exciting bit of Bermondsey.”

Dr Jeremy Campbell, client and advanced practitioner in feline medicine at The London Cat Clinic, said:
“Its the realisation of dream. After so much planning and building, with Gort Scott and our other project partners, it has been fabulous to say farewell to contractors and carpenters and hello to cats and their carers! The great reaction from everyone who has visited the clinic reaffirms my belief that we have created something unique for the cats of London and beyond.”

The site, a shell and core commercial unit before the works, sits within the Bermondsey Spa area. Beginning in 2002, this area has been significantly redeveloped and regenerated as part of Southwark’s Bermondsey Spa Masterplan.
