House Renovation In Ho Chi Minh City
The staircase for dogs was part of the design method for this simple house in Vietnam.
The architect envisioned not just a comfortable place to live, but a space where daily life will be more fun than usual.
Therefore, as a unique design feature, the house represents the client’s affection for their two dogs.
The pets' route features narrower treads and shorter risers than the adjacent one for humans, making it more suited to canine strides.
This also means the dogs' staircase is nearly twice as long so it curls round the back of the TV between a living room to a bed room.
