The Rayograph

Meshing Styles

Architect Ron Fleisher designed this fabulous house in the Israeli-Arab village of Musmus, Israel, melding traditional Islamic architecture and modernist design.

Vents and lattice work let the breezes filter through and circulate. One enters the house through a vaulted entrance hall which is based on a traditional liwan.

The house is situated on a hilltop overlooking a wadi.

Stones from the family’s olive grove were used to terrace the slopes around the residence.
