"Built one year after the Garvice Villa and the resthouse for Taher al-Omari, this house for Mrs. Al-Harini in Giza shows the extent to which Fathy was still searching for direction at this critical point in his career and was still attracted by fashionable Western values. He briefly reverts to the International Style once again here, using a high cylindrical glass stair enclosure to dominate the front of an Adolf Loos-like elevation. Several major gestures, however, such as the use of a hidden inner garden, which is protected from the street by an arched screen wall, hint at things to come." (construction not verified)
