Those who have had a small pet know how the effect that a non-ergonomic staircase can have on their furry friends. This project by 07BEACH architecture studio changes the way small pets experience steep stairs and creates a unique concept that caters to their size.

07BEACH architect Joe Chikamori conceived this split staircase design that combines a human-intended side with one that is narrower and specifically designed for small pets. The ergonomic staircase is carefully crafted with small canines in mind but is also practical for cats who have a fear of steep stairs.

This pet-focused design project illustrates millennials' growing appreciation of man's best friend and the family member status of pets in most modern homes.
