I looked at their site but missed that. It actually looks a bit like a Venetian Guild Hall [Una Scuola]. So perhaps the meeting house bit means just that. The Venetian Scuole where set up as charitable societies and always had a chapel. My favourite one being the Scuola di San Giorgio della Riva Schiavoni in Venice with its Carpaccio painting cycles. They were Dalmatians. Anyway, the Red Dog site says:
“The red dog studio is a listed building that was designed originally as a meeting house for the Moravians, a religious order originally from Bohemia, now part of the Czech Republic. It maintains all original features and provides an inspirational environment.”
PS: Where does your interesting name originate?
