This is one of Jafar Tukan's earliest houses in
Amman. It reflects an attempt
at re-establishing the traditional stone house in Jordan through both the
texture of the stone and its building technique. It is also an attempt at
re-introducing traditional urban Jordanian residential forms into the country's
contemporary architecture. Structural constructing system is reinforced concrete skeleton with hollow slabs with concrete block infill. All parts were manufactured in-situ, except mechanical and electrical equipment and windows.
