Clark retrofitted and renovated a 116-year-old historic structure to house the new San Francisco Animal Care and Control Facility, a multilevel veterinary care center in San Francisco, California. 

The modern, 65,000 square-foot facility features an animal hospital with specialty clinical and emergency room space, a medical laboratory, X-ray, and infirmary isolation functions. 

The project consisted of two adjacent buildings, the Burke Warehouse and the 1419 Bryan Street Building, constructed in 1893. The building, which survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and subsequent city-wide fire, retains its historic brick façade and industrial wood windows. Clark achieved the complexities of retrofitting this historic complex with a phased approach to ensure the seismic safety of the repurposed facility.
