    This modern home in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, was designed for the dogs. The owners asked their friend Joe Chikamori of 07BEACH to create a custom space that would accommodate their two lucky pets. Chikamori took the request one step further and set out to design a place where daily life for all of them could be "more fun than usual."

    The home, which was completed in 2012, features a dual staircase with separate heights for human and canine legs. The two levels are separated by a hand rail, but are otherwise open to each other and the rest of the living area.
