People & Giraffes

The new Giraffe House at the Auckland Zoo was designed by a joint effort from architects Monk Mackenzie and Glamuzina Patterson. This flexible breeding shelter accommodates both giraffes and zookeepers, who can observe and interact with the animals, thanks to moving sliding walls and doors.

People & Turtles

‘La Vida en los Objetos’ (Life within Objects) is Spanish designer Martín Azúa‘s furniture collection designed to allow people-animals interaction. One cool item from this collection is this superb recyclable polyethylene seat which comes with a plant pot for herbs and provides a place for turtles (or any small creature), to hide and relax.

People & Cats

A man from California has spent $35,000 to make his home more feline-friendly for his much-adored 18 cats. The whole playful design was carried out by Trillium Enterprises and includes plenty of wall-mounted walkways, floor-to-ceiling scratch posts and spaces design for cats to relax and take a good nap.
