A Modern Farm House

Henkin Shavit Architecture and Design as Architects

The concept of "plowing" was a preliminary boost to the conceptual design phase of the project. The "plowing", which is an arranged intervention in a land compound, divides it into strips or sowing areas. Those areas which are sub-spaces of the plot appear in the villa in the configuration of different spaces, with the rhythms of "plowing" producing the transitions between the public and the private. The spaces create an organized longitudinal system and a random widthwise system, of the person and his movement at home.


The Home design combined a program with existing sloped land topography, on a long and narrow lot in the size of 0.5 acres. The house is a complex which connects two single story separated "houses" that serve the parent unit program, children's unit, parking+guest bathroom+kitchen. Connecting the Houses was done by a shed – a light structure that combines glass, wood and steel and serves the program of dining and accommodation. The outdoors area incorporate the relationship between front garden to the adjacent ramp to the parking and the guest access road (by foot) and between the back garden which include a swimming pool, hospitality areas and different points of view to the rear plantation plot.
