We were honored to be the interior designers for the first new Animal Emergency Hospital in Byron Center in 2022. They had an older location on Plainfield in Grand Rapids, but the space looked tired and couldn’t compare with the new facility. The plan was to build a new hospital next door to the Plainfield location, and that dream came true when they moved into the new facility in February, 2024. r.o.i. Design worked with First Companies and Dr. Marilyn Brink, as we did the first time for the Byron Center location.

The plan for the Plainfield location was a flipped-flopped and mirrored version of the Byron Center location’s plan, due to site conditions, but it includes all these aspects that we so enjoy:

  • Large-scale black-and-white photos of dogs, cats, iguanas, birds, guinea pigs, and so much more.
  • Soaring tall ceiling in the lobby softened by “clouds” of acoustical materials and strip lighting.
  • Shiplap wood walls.
  • Metal-faced reception desk.
  • Half-walls in the waiting room with silhouettes of animals.

We hope that none of our animal friends will make an emergency stop at either location, so we are sharing some photos that give you a sense of the interior. And if you do have to stop, you will be in great hands in a great space
