On Saturday, October 8th HH Architecture sponsored and participated in the 2022 Barkitecture competition, an annual event hosted by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Triangle Chapter. The goal of this one-of-a-kind pet architecture and design competition is to raise money for local animal shelters. At the end of the event, each custom pet architecture is auctioned off and all proceeds go to help pets in need.
HH Architecture competed against many talented teams and took home the People’s Choice Award for our Camp Barkitecture design. Inspired by our design portfolio of recreational and natural space designs, the HH Architecture team developed this dwelling to offer the comforts of home with openness of the great outdoors. The water-resistant shell encases a structure that can be flat packed for when you’re ready to hit the open road; and plush bed provides comfort during campfire stories or a starlight snooze.
All proceeds from the event went to this year’s charity partners – Paw Prints Animal Rescue and Freedom Ride Rescue. Paw Prints Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the population of homeless cats and dogs by maintaining two programs — a Rescue and Adoption Program and a Feral Cat Management Program. Freedom Ride Rescue is led by fosters who take in shelter dogs until they are adopted. They provide vet care, training, supplies and hold weekly adoption events around the Triangle.
