Eco-Friendly Dog House Comes With Green Roof, Drink Fountain, Solar-Powered Fan
By Yoon Sann Wong, 11 Sep 2018
California-based architecture and interior design firm Studio Schicketanz has designed a doghouse unlike any other.
This eco-friendly canine cottage has a sleeping space with built-in drainage for easy cleaning and a solar-powered fan so your dog is kept cool on hot, summer days.
Window cutouts lets your canine peer out on either sides of the doghouse, which has a concealed compartment on its exterior to store doggy treats, toys, and other accessories.
In the event your dog yearns some sunshine, it can head up the green-carpeted ramp to the green roof, where a motion-activated water spout keeps your four-legged best friend well hydrated. To prevent unnecessary water wastage, an irrigation system has been connected to the drinking fountain.
Studio Schicketanz’s sustainable doghouse will be exhibited at the Carmel Canine Cottages Competition from 11 to 15 September, after which the house will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
