An Eco-Doghouse Made from Recycled Building Materials

This Eco-Doghouse, designed by Matthew Coates of Coates Design Architects, was built of 100% overage from construction projects, utilizing materials that may have otherwise gone to landfills. And, since this doghouse was built with sustainability in mind, it is arguably one of the healthiest indoor living environments built for a dog.

Because all materials used for this doghouse are non-toxic, Henri (Matthew’s Great Dane) won’t have to worry about doggie asthma, dermatitis, allergies, skin infections or other health issues that may generate from utilizing toxic products. This unique eco-dog house has FSC siding, thermal heated concrete floors and a vegetated roof.   The house is well ventilated and situated with a window facing Matthew’s desk, allowing Henri to have a line-of-sight to his favorite person on earth.

Coates Design Architects has received numerous awards and recognitions, including the international Cradle to Cradle (C2C) award, LEED Platinum certificate for the Ellis Residence, New Edge – New Blood Award (AIA) and honorable mention at the FSC awards in Chicago.  The team is currently designing the Bainbridge Art Museum and Island Gateway Project, as well as several custom homes and remodel projects.  Construction of the Eco-Doghouse by PHC Construction.
