A minimalist concrete cat house, sculptural play structure and multi-tiered condo are among the imaginative high-end designs dreamed up by 14 different architecture firms for the enjoyment of our feline friends. Many of the designs could double as human furniture, acting as a side table or bench while giving cats a comfortable and stylish place to sleep or play.
National organization Architects for Animals put on the ‘Giving Shelter’ event in Los Angeles, displaying all of these fun cat-centric creations, to raise money for the non-profit group Fixnation, which is dedicated to humane trap-neuter-return practices for homeless and stray cats.
Unlike most cat furniture, which tends to be on the low end of the design spectrum, these creations take the needs of cats just as seriously as those of their owners. The pieces range from colorful play tubes by NAC Architecture to a wooden tower with tiered, turf-covered landings by RNL.
