Dogs are man’s best friends, and have been for quite some time. So they deserve more than the lowly, ignoble reaches of dusty apartment floors, right? Architecture firm 07Beach clearly thinks so, as their new house renovation in Ho Chi Minh City attests to. The home features a staircase exclusively for canine traffic that straddles the main stairs. Dogs reach the second floor by nimbly navigating the treads, which wind around the television set in the living room up along the wall to the loft bedroom. We’re wondering if the dogs would choose the path of least (more?) resistance if that meant abandoning their owners’ side.
