Fancy Homes is a web project by artists Nikolina Ivezic and Nenad Laktasic where they’re exploring how far can we go when treating pets and making from them also a sort of a branded product perfectly suitable for branded owner in his/hers branded clothes while having a significant public (branded, too) appearance…

‘Our pet houses feature modern variable layouts, providing numerous options in terms of customized development of your garden or decoration of your apartment. This collection of houses is characterized by uncompromisingly simple design, yet it demonstrates pronounced stylistic awareness while applying high-quality materials. Particular attention has been given to the most exquisite workmanship. This terrarium is a P. Johnson Glass house replica, comprising a combination of alloy steel and satin glass’.
