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 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.
