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"

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"

This project exudes its intent, to create a fun apparatus for the dog to enjoy. Whether it's sitting on top, as king of their territory, or lying within the comfortable space, dreaming of steak, the dog is spoiled with this doghouse. Providing its organic shape, a lightweight wood frame is wrapped in fiberglass and tufted vinyl with artificial turf on top. 45"x52"x56"

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 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.
