"Kitty City"
Kitty City is one of the most fun and creative projects we have done. Ten years ago friends and clients contracted with local
architects in Sedona to build their spectacular new home. Being cat lovers and also having cat allergy  issues, they specified that
the contemporary design of their new home include a "cat room" so the cats would have their own space to sleep in. Details
included a special ventilation system for the room and floor to ceiling glass windows peering out to the natural forested setting of
the home. The room located off a glass gallery passageway also has a glass pocket door to view into the room.

The room originally furnished with standard carpeted cat towers and tubes served it's purpose. One day our friends approached
us and asked if we would be willing to take this room to the next level, a cat environment with an artistic flair. We all started
brainstorming ideas addressing the necessities such as food stations, logistics of litter needs - accessibility / storage / disposal.
Upon consideration of all practical needs and the desire for a fun whimsical space we made the proposal for "Kitty City".

The design came naturally from the home's open contemporary design with colorful furnishings and artwork. "Kitty City" was
designed to be a live-in sculpture which stimulates the inhabitants as well as give an artful aesthetic to the home.
