Benchy Bungalow

Bark + Build Winner - Best in Show (1st Place)!

Benchy Bungalow - Ridgemont/GFF

Bark + Build Team: Ridgemont Commercial Construction/GFF Architects


Community Partner: Kathy Parker, in Loving Memory of Bruce Neverman and His Beloved Companions, Boss and Chelsea

The conceptual design of our doghouse was inspired by one of the SPCA of Texas’s adoptable dogs, Cowboy. Starting with the idea of creating a modern saloon for him, our ideas drifted toward a rocking chair cozy on the porch. As our design evolved, we explored both unique and functional ideas, resulting in a creation that benefits man’s best friend as well as man. While the bench creates a shelter for the dog underneath, it also provides a place for the owner and dog to spend time together on top. From elevation view, one continuous curve gently wraps around the lower portion, bringing subtle attention and visual importance to the dog’s area making him the focus of our design.
