Studio Schicketanz is a California-based architectural firm behind a series of stunning homes. The outfit’s latest build is decidedly smaller but no less awesome. The brand built a dog house. But not just any dog house, mind you. No, this is easily the sweetest pup pad we’ve ever seen. As noted in designboom, the highlight is the green roof, which allows Fido some space to explore above the area he rests in. A motion-activated faucet on that roof offers hydration for your dog and helps irrigate the greenery. There’s even a storage area for toys, a drain for easy cleanup, and windows on the side walls. Unfortunately, you can’t just run to your local PetSmart to snag this luxurious doggy home. An auction will take place later this month with proceeds going to the SPCA of Monterey County.
