Reception desk emphatically establishes non-human animal focus of Petopia.com with a twelve-foot high skylighted aviary looming over the human receptionistís head.† Galvanized sheet metal gutters around base of aviary, fabricated from the same material as air conditioning ducts used elsewhere in the project, are intended to intercept any stray feathers or worse that may escape containment by the aviaryís mesh enclosure.
