The BowWow Haus London initiative will feature one-off dog kennels designed by architects, artists and celebrities. The creations will be exhibited in famous London locations like the iconic St Pancras Station and auctioned off at a charity gala event with proceeds going towards pets in need.
Amongst the big names who have already signed up are Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) who have designed “Cloud,” a curvaceous wooden cocoon bed that is elevated off the ground by a wooden pedestal and follows the form of a classic 60s bubble chair.
Other proposals include the futuristic Shiguru Foo-foo Pavilion (main post image) or the concrete Bark-alona Pavilion island by Design Haus Liberty.
My favourite so far is the below entry by contemporary architecture practice Shiro Studio offering a sleek hideaway in a geometrical wooden structure.
