This Gulf Heritage House Simple Design Pays Homage To The Past

The traditional buildings in the Gulf are intriguing due to the applied details and specific methods of construction. Why do the entrances have varying angles before leading to the court? How do the Barageel (wind towers) work? And why is the Majlis (guest’s room) located next to the entrance? What is the purpose of using multiple decorated openings in living rooms or bedrooms? The architecture of these buildings has been designed and built to cater to people specifically within a culture and its environment; the details of this society are reflected in the features of buildings. Distinguishing elements of traditional architecture can be identified in the traditional Gulf house around various parts of the Arab world. The astonishing traditional houses of ancient Bahrain, the charming houses in old Kuwaiti Fareejs, and the wind-catchers of the houses in Dubai’s Bastakia district are all examples of how architecturally forward the traditional Arabic house was.
