The cat house，started from the love of the owners of the Akita Bugu homestay. Since they operated the house, they had often adopted stray cats and dogs. Therefore, they planned to build a pet house to accommodate those homeless animals, and at the same time, they also provided a pet hotel for the passengers with pets.

According to the narrating concept of the three leaf grass courtyard in the Akita Bugu homestay, we extended the field of the cat house and expanded the narrating logic of the four leaf grass. The pet house had two separate rooms for cats and dogs. The two rooms considered that they might fight with each other, so the windows of the two rooms were opened to avoid their direct eye contact. Therefore, the direction of the two rooms was also adjusted according to the brightness.
We found a pillar similar to a building to encourage passengers to hand over their memory postcards here. Children could send messages to their pets or themselves. At a certain moment in their future lives, If you go back here to read your memory, maybe it will add a different color to your future life.
At first, the house near the house was a shelter for cats. Later, in fact, the shelter for cats was more than for dogs, so the distribution of the two rooms was temporary. There was a cafe which could be used for parent-child vacation. The guests played together. One room was mainly for receiving, treatment and nursing.
The overall architectural style of the house continued the logic of the triangular building in the previous Akita Bugu homestay. Combined with the logic of the cat house, the circular arched shed was shaped like the ears of a cat. The surface material was also made of PVC ripple color steel plate, making the building look a little fluffy. We hope that the cat house can give people the same feeling as the Akita cuckoo, warm, natural and soft.
We think a good hotel may not only bring customers service, but also experience. There were also some very important memories and insights in one’s life. Honeymoon, wedding, graduation, birthday, vacation, companionship, parties and other memories that only belong to you in the Akita Bugu homestay restart will be kept for you all the time. You can go back to the valley to restart this memory at different ups and downs in your future life.
