A Well-Cultivated House


  • Rafi Segal


The project to design a villa in Mongolia in China provided Rafi Segal with an opportunity to rethink the relationship between the natural and the built, blurring the boundaries between the agricultural and the domestic. The house and rural landscape are unified through the main roof structure, a furrowed surface that resembles a ploughed field planted with crops and local flora.
