Architectural Cat Houses for a Cause

View all 7 Photos

These stunning cat houses were created for Architects for Animals’ “Giving Shelter” fundraiser in Los Angeles. The designs drew a crowd of not-so-crazy cat people, and all proceeds went to FixNation, a Californian spay-neuter nonprofit. Kind and contemporary, the designs please feline friends and design-conscious guardians alike with their geometry, texture, and clean look.
The cat houses were designed by various architects: Formation Association, HOK, Perkins + Will, DSH architecture, Standard Architecture and Design, Wolcott Architecture, Abramson Teiger Architects, d3architecture, Lehrer Architects, NAC architecture, Pfeiffer Partners Architects, RNL, RTKL, and Space Int’l.

One of our favorites, the Cat Cube, was done by Standard Architecture Design. The minimalist play house is made of thick planks of wood and slabs of concrete in order to keep the cats inside warm. There are multiple tiers and textures so that more than one kitty can roost and move around throughout the day.
