Created by Atelier About Architecture, the incredible Atelier Dog House features a distinct layout, color scheme, choice in materials and furniture that was chosen to cater to the needs of the owner's disabled dog. Located in Beijing, China, this home was specifically created to make the lives of the dog and owner simpler, without compromising on gorgeous design and a modern minimalist aesthetic.

The basement of the Atelier Dog House is perhaps where the focus of this home best shines, as this space belongs almost exclusively to the pet. The floor features soft materials meant to be gentle on the animal's joints. Ramps and stairs are coated with a waterproof, non-slip coating. Two dog-only bathrooms are on this floor and were designed after architects made a long-term study of the habits of the owner and dog.
