Dorrington Atcheson Architects

The Pup Tent

The Pup Tent is the result of a collaborative effort on behalf of DAA.

Weekly Friday afternoon sessions, often fuelled by multiple cheeky tipples, have seen us delve into the psychology of dogs and what an architectural doghouse should be.

We are convinced the design should be both an attractive object for humans as well as being a functional and desirable space for dogs.

The design is an aluminium faceted form with a plywood base.

The interior is finished in autumnal colours, which creates a calming environment for the inhabitant.

Apertures in the base hold removable food and water recep¬tacles with adjacent space for a comfy bed.
