Austin, Texas – Pfluger Architects’ Kelsey Snider and her team developed the Best of Show winner for the Animal Lovers of Austin, Inc. 2018 Austin Barkitecture event, benefitting PALS, Emancipet, and Bastrop Animal Rescue. The Benny House was designed for its namesake, Benny, a BAR rescue dog fostered by Snider.
The house boasts a large-scale layout with a modern chic vibe that would accommodate any size dog. The house has a quartz floor and solar-powered fan for those hot Texas days and was designed for easy cleanup by simply hosing the whole thing down.
Barkitecture events across the country raise money for local animal welfare organizations. Companies and organizations build luxury doghouses that are auctioned off to the highest bidder. All proceeds from these sales go straight to animals in need. This year, Benny was one of the lucky dogs chosen as a beneficiary of Austin’s event.
