The Ruff House Play & Stay

Chesapeake, VA

Time/ 2019


The sister location of Bayside Kennels, the Ruff House project covers a 10,000SF dog daycare and boarding facility located in Chesapeake, VA. The design involved converting an existing warehouse/office complex into a welcoming and functional space for doggies and other animals with good flow for easy operations. Multiple discussions with the clients about dog and other animal behaviors, as well as proper workflow for customers and staff contributed to the overall design.

Multiple discussions with the clients about dog and other animal behaviors, as well as proper workflow for customers and staff contributed to the overall design. A combination of materials, including reclaimed wood and corrugated metal panels, allow for low maintenance of the doggie  friendly environment as well as keeping the industrial look of the original building in tact.

Ruff House Testimonial

“Can’t recommend enough! Suping and Yang were so easy to work with! They took the time to actually get to know our business and the ins and outs to make the best possible design for us. They were ahead of schedule the entire way, and took extra pains to work with the City Permitting agency ahead of time so we had no issues getting approved. Lovely people who made our lives easier through through true understanding of our purpose. Thanks, guys!”
