It’s been a long week. I’d like to celebrate Friday with a look at fun and silly pet-driven architecture.
In the Dog House
- Apparently dogs benefit from ramps and the ability to communicate closer to their humans at eye level.
- This poodle has morphed into a diva as a quirky pet perch has enabled its owners to ascribe to it human characteristics.
- Architecture for animals can take its cue from larger buildings on site. This turn-of-the-century Belgian dog house, available on 1st Dibs, is a serious structure and makes no bones about it.
- Coming to a backyard near you…. Martha Stewart has her own sophisticated creation in a color called (what else?) eggshell white.
- In Santa Barbara, California, Buff Orpington hens reside in this 6′x6′ coop, photographed by Debra Prinzing.
- Here’s a bi-level hen house in the backyard of a client’s Tudor home in Newton, Massachusetts- blogged about in the warmth of summer
For the birds.
- Even mainstream Crate & Barrel has gotten caught up in the action, calling their humble bird house “Bodega Bird Chalet”.
