SUMMIT ASSISTANCE DOGS
OAK HARBOR, WASHINGTON
Summit finds, trains for specific tasks and provides dogs to disabled individuals that need help with their daily lives. Boxwood provided Goals and Visioning, Programming and Master Planning and conceptual design services for a new campus of buildings. Included structures are administration, training, kennels for dogs, a future dormitory for clients, as well as trails, roads, parking and infrastructure. The design emphasizes natural light and ventilation, sustainable materials, and buildings sited naturally along the sloping terrain with connecting covered walkways between each building.
