Cat Architecture: 6 Homes Designed With Felines in Mind
Cats are beloved members of many families—and they need space to roam and play! In densely populated urban areas, where gardens, parks, and trees are few and far between, cat-loving architects have designed homes with cozy places for kitties to nap, perch, and move about with ease. Read on for six of our favorite feline-friendly homes.
BFDO Architects designed this Brooklyn townhouse for a cat-loving professor and a poet. The home features a feline-friendly bookcase with nooks, crannies, and a catwalk on top. Trapdoors on both sides of the apartment allow the owner's cat to access the upper rooms.
Tokyo architect Takeshi Hosaka created this home for a couple with two cats. Strategically designed openings in the roof and the walls allow the cats to move around with ease.
Japanese architect Akira Koyama designed this Tokyo home around the movements of the residents' pet cat. Stepping stone-style shelves and high-level apertures allow the cat to move between the rooms without having to use the landing and stairs.
