These inspired outdoor cat shelters created by some of Los Angeles’ leading design firms were made for Architects for Animals’ Giving Shelter, a benefit event for feline charity FixNation held on Wednesday at the Herman Miller showroom in L.A.

All of the shelters have been donated to FixNation, which spays and neuters homeless cats across L.A. A publicist for the event told me that the charity would choose the best locations for the cat shelters, which will be used “on private property where cats live out of doors.”
