Designed for the Sukkah City competition, 2010, Domesticated is a temporary structure erected for providing a sitting room for two to six people, where they can convene, reside or share their allotted spaces with others. The sort of hybrid house-animal is both a house and furniture. Inhabitants could enjoy its informal seating arrangement including mats on the ground, the laminated wood frame as a bench and a low dining table.

The hut, which is a sukkah basically, is raised on three levels: a flowing frame, curved surfaces and the schach. The flowing frame utilizes salvaged joists for the flexible wooden strips, which are glued together to create smoothly curved surfaces. The strips combine to form a lightweight composite that lends robustness to the entire construction. Deadfall and storm-damaged limbs from street trees forms the schach that can be replaced every year.
