Atlanta-based Industrial Designer Zach Griggs and Art Director/illustrator/graphic designer Roy Fleeman have teamed up to start Pyramd Design Co., a network of designers, engineers, artists, fabricators and business professionals. Their first product, the Puphaus, is a modern dog house any architecture afficionado would love.
The Puphaus by Pyramd Design Co
The dog-loving duo wanted to design and build something unique for man’s best friend, and they have succeeded with the Puphaus. Ditching plastic igloos and hard-to-assemble designs, the Puphaus is an architecturally-inspired, American-made dog house crafted of Natural American Western Red Cedar and Grey Portland Cement Board.
The awesome looking abode is basically maintenance free. It comes flat-packed for affordable shipping, and can be easily assembled in five steps without any tools.
Designed for dogs weighing 50 lbs or less, the Puphaus has integrated food and water bowls and corrosion-resistant hardware.
Although the Puphaus looks great as it is, you can have some creative fun with it to customize it to you -or your pup’s- liking. Customers may apply a wood stained or oiled finish to the cedar panels. Color can also be applied to the cement board by using an off-the-shelf concrete stain (Behr or similar brand).
Puphaus is designed to be used outdoors, but can certainly be used indoors as well. When located outdoors, it is recommended that Puphaus be placed on a flat, level surface such as a lawn, patio, or deck, in an area that is not prone to flooding.
Taking cues from modern home design, naturally-derived materials were chosen that would look and feel at home in any outdoor setting, while coming together to make a head-turning architectural statement.
