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.

Australian House & Garden - - THE CHRISTMAS ISSUE DECEMBER -

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. >
