This open concept was designed to mimic the natural canopy of a grove. The lower portion provides a small nook tucked away for the sleep area mimicking a burrow hole while providing views to the outside. The thin columns provide support for the turf roof while giving it a sense of weightlessness. 3'x3'x4'

This pirate ship is sure to make any teacup pup feel like the big dog of the seas. With multiple levels and a vast interior, there is plenty to explore. Pup overboard! but don't worry, the splash pad is shallow and perfect to cool off during those hot summer days. The gang plank and sail mast both retract for easier transportation. 36"x36"x48"

The Breezy Bungalow is designed to meet the needs of the biggest pups on the block. A large opening makes it easy for our big friends to get in and curl up for a nap or just watch the world go by. It can get hot in Texas with all that furr, but this home is designed with slatted walls to keep that cool breeze blowing through so your pup stays cool and comfortable. The planter on the roof of this home makes it a little extra welcoming! 42"x52"x48"

Side table. No dog bed? Huh? Cat cave? The Double Take can serve both dogs or cats (if you're lucky you'll find both cuddling within) by thoughtfully containing essential amenities for your dog/cat in a side table. This carefully designed table, a concrete mass containing an articulable wooden form, hides a murphy-style fold away bed - opened up, your furry friend is kept nearby; closed, you've managed to store away their bed, freeing up whatever awkward corner it had previously been stored in. Even it its closed position the weed form creates a tunnel/cave condition you're likely to find your cat spying on you from...all this while being the most artful object in your home. 2'6"x2'x3'1"

Inspired by the true nature of a canine! The creature comforts of the selected materials and colors from the warm wood finish to the turf roof invokes the feeling of home in a whimsical yet practical way. The double curved slope turf roof and thoughtful details creates a sense of seamless integration into the landscape with durability in mind. The introduction of varying wood slat siding and integral dog bowl brings in simple yet intentional details to provide an open expression while also maintaining the integrity of the doghouse. Each unique component of the design is an ode to the canine with playful and thoughtful implementation of elements while creating a cozy environment. 3'8"x4'11.5"x4'11.5"

We wanted to design an elegant piece that would work in any home size, so our design integrates form and function, providing space for all of a cat's needs - to sleep, eat, play, scratch, and a concealed space to do its business. We played with solid and open elements to allow cats to survey the room while also having space to hide. Two separate bedding elements, one a cotton cushion and another a thickly woven hammock, make the design friendly for multi-cat homes. 5'x18"x2'

During this time of social distancing, pets have maximized their time and attention with us by taking over our workspaces as their own. The "Best Friend Desk" takes on the challenges of working with attention seeking, spaciously unaware, homebody pets by providing alternate lodgings and entertainment all the while functioning as a workspace for the work-from-home human. The streamlined, complementary curved desk inherently allows for multiple levels of lounging perches and places for playful interlocking with one another. Along with a see-through glass worktop, it permits everyone to be comfortably seen and engaged no matter the species. thus creating and claiming, for both pet and human, the "Best Friend Desk." 3'8"x 2'2"x3'11"

The organic, cocoon-like form provides the feeling of a protected enclave, while the cleanable exterior material is woven through the frame to allow more breathability. The top surface of the piece features a planter to add a touch of greenery for a holistic and natural design upgrade. So let your pet lay back, turn on the sound of crashing waves with a noise machine, bring them a refreshing bowl of water and let hem experience complete relaxation in this furniture piece designed for the dog with a touch of wanderlust. 32"x24"x48"

Merging the traditional doghouse with flat pack construction, portaPUP is composed of 5 pieces of wood allowing for simple assembly without fasteners into a rigid, portable shelter. The panels are made of locally sourced cedar, lightweight for ease of travel/portability and resistance to moisture and sunlight, making it an ideal doghouse on the go. The flat pack design and structure allow for freedom of movement and can be assembled and disassembled in an instant. Intersecting areas of portaPUP create storage space while assembled. Strategic perforation and voids allow portaPUP to breathe while providing shade, creating a comfortable and tranquil space for all dogs seeking an escape from the Texas heat. 3'x4'x5'

The Box is not just a box! The design starts with a box and adds and subtracts elements to create a doghouse for a playful pup. The entry awning provides shade for the pup who likes to lay outside and catch some sun, while the back window provides views for the dog who prefers to stay inside and watch from him comfortable bed. Rustic and durable building elements, such as cypress wood and metal accents, enclose the space; graphics enhance the playfulness while the folding bowl holders for food and water add a layer of practicality. 2'9"x3'x4'

"Pupperoni Macaroni" explores the silhouette of a conventional dog house extruded along a bent "macaroni" curve. This simple gesture allows for two "front doors" for two different pups or for the always classic game of "running in circles". Put two or more houses end-to-end and create unlimited squiggles and loops. Drawing inspiration from the facade of James Stirling's No 1 Poultry in London, the stripes visually tie the two doors together and give the house a timeless and contemporary look suited for the modern doggo. 1'6"x2'x4'

Having evolved from its decidedly prim and proper Victorian era origin as a "tea trolley" in the late-1800s, the Cocktail Cart is now seen as a glamorous vehicle to distribute celebratory libations in style. We took our obsession with mobile aperitifs and married it with our love for four-legged friends, and voila: Bar(k)ART was born. This Cocktail Cart / Small Pet Bed hybrid features elegant proportions, a delicate yet sturdy welded steel frame with brass details, and lavishly exotic hardwoods. Bar(k)ART's transitional design will roll right into any living room with a double-shot of cosmopolitan luxury. 2'10"x1'6"x2'8.5"

Every family is unique-some have dogs, some have cats, and others have both. The Graft house explores the expression that happens when dogs and cats get along in one home. This house encourages the curiosity of the cat to explore the vertical maze of the floating platforms above as the dog remains close to the comfort of a bed below. As opposite as they may be, dogs and cats have a common place in the Graft house.4'x3'x3'

The Gardenview Paw-vilion provides a feeling of being cocooned by a protective, sculptural canopy, like a favorite blanket draped over a dog's crate. At the bottom, sliding panels allow for both privacy and customizable views in different directions. Designed from the dog's perspective, this modern take on a pavilion creates connections to his or her humans and surrounding garden activities.
White oak wood relates to natural comfort, a resilient choice for the outdoors, and the removable canopy enables easy access for cleaning. The sliding panels simultaneously allow for natural air ventilation, while the full height entrance lets hot air escape at the top.
