The Villa Anbar is a fairly small Saudi residence, executed under a tight budget, located in a middle class neighbourhood. It is 300 m2 of built area and occupies a 510-m2 site. It is one storey high and has a tiny courtyard that pierces the centre, dividing the house into two sections; the front is for daytime use and receiving guests, the rear part is for sleeping and repose.
The plan of the house is rectangular with a small courtyard in the middle and a single frontage on the street from the west side. The house consists of two reception rooms, a kitchen, two bathrooms, two water closets, three bedrooms, and a maid's room with another kitchen on the roof terrace. There is a driver's room located on top of the garage that overlooks a swimming pool/waterfall located in the front yard. The courtyard illuminates corridors inside the house on three of its four sides. The remaining side directly faces the reception hall. Courtyard openings are small and appear to be scattered informally along the façades. The house can be entered from two sides. The main entrance is from the West, overlooking a garden and the street. The first room one enters is a reception hall, the largest space of the building. From this space one can proceed to the dining room, or walk through two corridors, which flank a small courtyard.
