Saudi Arabian novelist has built a beautiful modern house for his residence by the help of the British archtect, Peter Barber. The modern house fits the mold to a T with its modern profile, curving rooflines, and a cool, white facade dotted with windows. The single-storey design sits at the center of a garden encircled by a high wall. Inside, the home is divided into two distinct areas – the front which houses the living and entertaining areas, and the rear of the home devoted to privacy with its sleeping quarters. The home’s various rooms, which include two reception areas, a kitchen, two bathrooms, two powder rooms, three bedrooms and a maid’s room, all lead to the heart of the home – a central outdoor courtyard. To deal with the arid climate of the desert, a rooftop terrace is built on the topping with an alfresco kitchen, pool, and waterfall in the garden.
