Foster + Partners designs paw-inspired dog house with geodesic shell

“like architecture in miniature”, says Norman Foster

Foster + Partners shares her contest entry for a tip dog kennel as part of Goodwoof, a new pet-focused event taking place this weekend (28-29 May 2022) at Goodwood House in West Sussex. Called the “Dome-Home,” the plush doghouse has enough geometric shape to make any design-conscious dog owner drool.

“We are delighted to be participating in this year’s Goodwoof”, said Norman Foster. “The Dome-Home features a geodesic shell structure – it’s like architecture in miniature.”

reinvent canine luxury

Handcrafted by English furniture maker Benchmark from engineered cherry wood, Dome-Home is a celebration of craftsmanship and quality woodworking. The architects forms a bowl-shaped interior with a flexible padded fabric liner that can be easily removed for washing.

Dome-Home by Foster + Partners will compete with architects from around the world during Goodwoof‘s Barkitecture competition for the ‘Single Kennel Design Award’. The final shortlisted kennels will be auctioned off by Bonhams in a live sale on Sunday May 29. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Britain’s largest dog welfare charity, Dog’s Trust.
