Located next to the regular stairwell, the pooch-friendly staircase has smaller steps and even a doggy balustrade. The short riser height and shallow incline translates to a much longer stairway, which winds around the living room wall like a work of art. The minimalist stair is painted all white to match the existing stairway and the interior’s minimalist aesthetic—we hope the client’s dogs don’t have muddy paws.

The client was a personal friend of Joe Chikamori, the principal architect at 07Beach. In a note to the client Chikamori wrote: “I designed this so that your house could represent your affection for your wife and your two dogs, with the idea that this house will be like a gift to your family.” The doggy staircase was created as part of the client’s home renovation, which took 17 days to design and an additional 26 days for construction.
