Pasado’s Safe Haven

Pasado’s mission is to provide lifelong sanctuary to animals that have been subject to abuse and neglect. Their nonprofit organization and animal spaces share an amazing piece of land just outside of Monroe, Washington. We are honored to help them create new homes for a variety of barnyard and household companions, and offices and homes for the people that care for them.

The new program spaces will be spread across various sites throughout the property, and include a new Cow Barn, People Barn, Kitty City, Dog Towne, and Caregiver housing.

To address the complex and intersecting needs of people and animals throughout the site, we formed an integrated design team at the start of the project. We led a conceptual design workshop for the team and Pasado’s staff to share perspectives and ideas for program and site development. Other team members are being selected now to move forward into individual building needs.

Low-impact site development will be a priority throughout the project, and Net Zero Water and Energy strategies are being explored for many of the program areas. Healthy, local construction materials will be used in spaces for people and animals alike.
