FELINE HOMESTEAD

Kennel + Residential New Construction
Riverside, CA

Designed to house a cat kennel, residence, and office on a large homestead site with lush vegetation, the project is a series of buildings united by a spine/walkway, separating the private functions from the public.The cat kennels are designed around a graphically labeled thermal chimney, which naturally ventilates the space. Eight cat rooms are connected via a hallway which allows access to a sliding feeding/liter cabinet and clear cat 'tunnels' above which allow the cats to traverse to outdoor sun boxes on the north facade.
