Remember our article The Dog House You Have to See to Believe? Well if you thought that was incredible, prepare to be amazed…

Dogs really are mans best friends. But even best friends dont get this kind of royal treatment!

Imagine a stunning house that completely fits your needs as well as your dogs needs. A design firm, Chinas Atelier About Architecture, in Beijing designed a modern house for a client that includes special design elements for the owners dog. In developing the project, the architecture firm paid close attention to the flow of the floor plan, decorative accents and overall atmosphere of the house to support the dogs health needs.

The design of the house centers on the pet dogs needs and habits, including decoration, furniture, space and materials. The house is split into two kinds of homes one for the dog and one for the human owner. The 4,300-square foot residence has a typical design floor plan that includes a dining room, kitchen, multiple bedrooms, common entertainment space and a living room. It embraces modern architecture with slopes and angles that employ a lot of light-filled spaces, and the dcor uses attractive modern colors like white, blue and cool grays. It has two floors dedicated to the human owners.

But wait there’s more! The pups space in the house, on the other hand, is the full basement. The colors chosen play to help with depth and direction for the dog, like lake blue, yellow and pink. The spacious basement is designed for the dog and has an open shower, relaxation space and a lot of ramps. The dogs floor also has enough room for veterinarians to provide medical care and make house calls for routine examinations for the dog.

The materials in the dogs space are functional to reduce the sound of a dogs barking with high-tech noise reduction, and the materials reduce damage from friction of the joints. The owners dog has hip pain and extremely sensitive fragile joints. This means that the Beijing architecture design team incorporated soft floor materials to diminish the impact of hard surfaces on the dog, and also installed waterproof coating on stairs.

This is not your average dogs house! The dog also has two dog-only bathrooms inside. The loyal owner wanted to provide the best home for himself and his best friend more so for his best friend than himself! The dogs needs came first in this commission, and the architects adhered to that message. They incorporated a design treatment that fits the needs of the owners dog above all else!
