Dog Pod by Mark Gorton for Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners

Dog Pod's bold space-age look - influenced by the designer's son's love of Star Wars - offers style and comfort to its canine resident. Adjustable lunar landing pad feet enable the unit to be raised off the ground during colder weather whilst allowing cooling air circulation on warmer days. The kennel's hexagon entrance door, when lowered, transforms into a star ship-style boarding ramp, and space age air vents to the rear maximize through-ventilation of the unit. An aluminium canopy sits atop Dog Pod, creating a cavity just above the main timber frame and casing, allowing solar gain heat to dissipate, and the futuristic orange canopy can slide forward to create a shaded alfresco dining area to relax in.

As with any Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners project, structural legibility is a strong aesthetic, and with Dog Pod, the main marine ply frame is exposed to show how the kennel is constructed and supported. Each modular unit can be scaled-up to suit larger dogs, interconnected to create super-sized kennels, or stacked vertically to offer honeycomb-like pods for dog homes.

Size: Width 835mm, Depth 1495mm, Height 660mm
Approximate weight 35kg.
