Cat Furnishings: A lot more Comfort and ease and Health for Felines at Home
In architecture, the most widespread is to design and style for people only. Having said that, masking the scope of the venture for other species is an training that has been proposed in many orders. From unique furniture to inside structure prepared for the animal, the opportunities of generating a far more playful and at ease atmosphere, both for humans and animals, are various.
There are a number of tasks that commence from this agenda and make spaces for cats to exercising, discover resting niches, so they do not accessibility sections that have attractive components and toss them on the flooring, or even for the security of the kitty alone.
At Apartamento Fradique, created by Studio92 Arquitetura, a single of the most important requirements was that obtain to the kitchen was closed to the cats though anyone was cooking, as in the past, one of the animals experienced a minimal accident on the stove. As a result, here they shed accessibility to this room, but attained prominence on the shelf in the dwelling place, which was created to be utilised as a “playground” by cats without the need of shedding its perform. In it, the cats gain accessibility to some niches and cabinets, so that their motion is limited in a way they do not have accessibility to the elements with decor objects. Thinking about shelves, one more instance is Teresa Mascaro’s proposition created at Higienópolis Condominium, in which the marine plywood shelves in the living place, as a result of holes, make it possible for the cats to work out and climb to the maximum stage, in strengthened concrete, which surrounds the entire social space and serves as a resource for indirect lights.
In a a lot more modest action, but which still appears to be like to the feline inhabitants, a espresso desk was built to serve as a hammock for them at Mira Condominium, made by SuperLimão. At Loloite Condominium, URBANODE arquitetura went a little more and intended a piece of home furnishings for the house’s cats, which serves as a guardrail for the stairs.
In this much more multifunctional sense, of having advantage of an existing operate of the household to completely transform it into furniture for cats, Adhoc Arquitectura y Territorio made a place for cats in f(x) Property: a backyard that materializes in rolling cabinets, with holes and methods made so that the cats can play, at the similar time serving as factors that conceal the laundry area.
Ultimately, in much more radical interventions, we have two examples in which the residences have environments particularly built for animals. In the situation of Apartamento Arluzia, intended by Matú Arquitetura, the consumer expressed from the beginning the interest in “catifying” the apartment, which brought a distinct viewpoint to the project and authorized the elaboration of a layout that would meet up with everyone’s requires, both equally in conditions of functionality as well as aesthetics, via a shelf-playground for the cats or an underpass as a result of the doors, in get to enable the animals to move. KC Design Studio, by indicates of aspects, uncovered the transformation of the strategy in between spaces as furnishings and furniture as space at Cat’s Pink Residence, the place, for instance, the stairs on which the cats stroll matches the owner’s place of work desk in buy to function and play with the kittens at the exact same time.
