Ratcliffe Architects is partnering with a local animal shelter to create a home for pets of Families Dealing with Health Crises. The project involves renovation and restoration of the circa-1860s colonial stone house where Elsie Seeger Barton, the organization’s founder, lived.
Barton House will become a “pet sanctuary” that accommodates dogs and cats whose owners can no longer care for them due to their own poor health situations and other personal crises. The architecture will prioritize both the well-being of the animals and the experience of the visitors, fostering a sense of compassion and support.
