A delight for architecture aficionados and dog lovers, the new book from photographer Nicole England puts to rest any doubt as to who’s really top dog in the house.
An enchanting new book on architects’ dogs at home.
Executing his best downward dog pose, Harry, the hirsute owner-occupier of the Melbourne home above, is one cool customer. At 18 months, the titian-haired toy poodle has the run of the property, which he shares with fellow poodle Ginger, now 12, and their humans, Graham and Dana Burrows. Graham, an architect, designed the house five years ago; its easy indoor-outdoor flow and enduring finishes throughout work beautifully for all concerned. By day, Harry’s ‘office’ is the living-room sofa, while Ginger prefers the nearest lap. With easy access to the garden, everyone’s happy. This is just one of 25 homes shared by architects and dogs that photographer Nicole England has captured in a new book, Resident
Dog. Each of her canine models rose to the occasion. “The presence of a dog allows us to see these homes in a completely different way,” Nicole writes in her foreword. Check out more scenes of Harry and Ginger’s wonderful life over the page. >
