The Dog Room achieves a form that strikes the perfect balance between traditional design elements and modern aesthetics. The concept is inspired by basic archetype of a house complete with pitched roof, and is a child’s typical line drawn representation of a home. The Dog Room is made from hand-welded aluminium frame and a series of marine ply panels which is carefully detailed to create a distinctly clean appearance. The Dog Room is produced through social enterprise manufacturing in Brisbane ensuring the luxury dog house is good for people and pets. The Dog Room uses marine ply allowing the product to be used indoor and outdoor. Available with an optional Aussie Wool Comfort to produce a custom-fit dog bed. These beds are 100% wool, Australian-made and machine-washable in front load machines. Colour: Navy-Brown and available at exclusive pricing with kennel purchases (RRP$99). Michael Ong is an award winning architect based in Melbourne, Australia. Having studied a Masters of Architecture at The University of Melbourne, Michael has gone on to be the Founding Director of his own design and architectural practice – Michael One Design Office (MODO).Michael is passionate about producing quality designs and wants you to love it as much as he does. He explores concepts to create designs rich in personality, functionality and quality. Michael applied this same thinking when developing The Dog Room in order to produce an engaging design that enhances one’s lifestyle and environment. It is recommended the Dog Room is not placed directly in harsh environments. Placement on verandahs, porch or under an overhead shelter is recommended. A small amount of natural movement of the timber is expected as it adapts to the conditions of your home, due to variations in humidity and temperature. Assembly required.
