Because our domestic animals also have the right to live in a stylish setting Touffu is an original house for pets that hides a very special design behind its typical pitched roof facade. The thing that makes Touffu different is not obvious but requires looking more carefully at the detail and how the whole is put together. The structure is conceived as a series of panels put together easily, one fits the other, slotting into a series of grooves provided in each panel that makes its assembly simple and structurally sound without using any screws. They slot together under their own weight so that the house is perfectly stable.


This type of coupling, using pressure and without the need for any other assembly tools is a marvel of traditional Japanese carpentry, that is commonly used in the construction of architectural structures in that country. And in fact the designers of this pet house for the outdoors are just that, two architects: Violeta Alcaide Weishaupt and Manel Jiménez Ibáñez. Touffu is possibly the smallest scale house project that an architect could be involved with but there was an added difficulty, it had to be made into a flat pack in order to facilitate shipping.


The panels are made from phenolic board, a material that can withstand inclement weather conditions. However Toffu can easily be accommodated indoors thanks to its suave looks which are equally at home inside. The interior has a cushion, upholstered with a re-moveable cover so that it can be washed.


Touffu is available in two sizes, one for larger pets and the other for smaller ones.

It’s suitable for dogs, cats or hamsters.
