Minnesota Private Residence

http://www.cookarchitectural.com
Perched on wooded hilltop, this historical estate home was thoughtfully restored and expanded, addressing the modern needs of a large family and incorporating the unique style of its owners. The design is teeming with custom details including a porte cochère and fox head rain spouts, providing references to the historical narrative of the site’s long history.

Thank you for your interest in our project. Unfortunately, we do not have additional photos of this feature. We imagine it could be done with a smaller island.

The cabinetry is custom built for this project. Unfortunately only you know if your dogs will like a bed or not, maybe fill it with treats at first to get them used to the idea. Good luck!

This is awesome -- great idea. Can you please tell me what kind of floor you used? Are they porcelain tiles (12 by 12 or what size?) or is it another material?
Thank you so much.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Pet Problems Solved by Design
1. Furry, unattractive beds. This built-in cushion is a nifty way to incorporate your furry companion's equally furry bed into a neat little hideaway. You can customize it to match your decor, and it keeps the pet hair (the bane of any dog/cat owner's existence) in the nook.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Off the Beaten Path: Delightful Alcove Spaces
Our best friends deserve alcoves too. And certainly an alcove they can call their own located near the kitchen makes it all the better.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Cozy Up in a Built-In Bed Cubby
Who said we’re the only ones who love a cozy nook? Our four-legged friends deserve them, too.More creative sleeping quarters:Space Savers: Bunking in Style
Vanessa Brunner added this to Get Organized: A Place for Your Pets' Stuff
3. Give them a special sleeping spot. I don't know about you, but fur is what plagues my pet-friendly house more than anything else. It's definitely been a challenge to figure out what zones my cat should be allowed into, and how to train him to stay off our red couch. If you have the room, a great solution for this is to build-in a bed for your dog or cat. Animals love safe, snug spots like this.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
18. Beware pet odors. Really, this can be a big one! If you have pets, get all rugs steam cleaned and be extra vigilant about vacuuming and washing surfaces. Also be sure to keep any extra-loved pet toys and doggie bones hidden when tours are scheduled.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Ways to Keep Pets Comfy-Cozy at Home
Color. It's believed that animals can't see color like we humans can. But that doesn't mean their bedding can't offer color in abundance to please our tastes. Pet pillows and upholstered cushions can be opportunities to add shots of seasonal color or pull from the existing room palette.
Use design to create attractive spots for pet beds; investing in a built-in will keep the dog bed off the floor and will provide a cozy spot. Banish ugly dog beds and hideous cat condos, hide the litter box and dry food in convenient areas, and learn to live in design harmony with your favorite animals.
