In the shelter project with a capacity of 200 dogs in total, the round plan form was preferred to be protected from harsh climatic conditions and to provide ease of control for veterinarians. The circular plan form is interrupted at the entrance and education area and directs the circulation. The structure was shaped with a steel bearing system and pumice walls were preferred.
