It can be characterised by its cherry wood geodesic exterior. The tessellating geometry spans the entirety of the dog kennel and has a rectangular opening at its front.
The interior has a removable padded fabric lining that echoes the tesselating geometry of the cherry wood exterior.
Dome-Home was designed by Foster + Partners for the Barkitecture competition at Goodwoof –a two-day exhibition and dog event, where architects compete to be awarded the Single Kennel Design Award, which calls for contemporary and innovative kennels.
"We are delighted to be involved in this year’s Goodwoof," said Norman Foster. "The Dome-Home features a geodesic shell structure – it is like architecture in miniature."
Practices were tasked with delivering and constructing a design within a maximum budget of £250.
In total 16 kennels were shortlisted, including The Nook by Stanton Williams, Le Cork et Modular Dog by Lincoln Miles Architecture, Le Dogular, the Zero Waste Kennel by Hopkins and Dog Pod by Mark Gorton for Roger Stirk Harbour & Partners.
The shortlisted kennels will be auctioned by Bonhams with their proceeds donated to the Dog's Trust.
Goodwoof takes place from Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May.
