The interior of the home is not decorated with expensive museum pieces but is instead filled with ordinary functional and traditional decor.
The variety of materials utilized in the construction and finishing of the home is astonishing. Angawi is a master at combining materials, textures, and shapes. Many of the home's objects are quite old, such as a 300 year old carved door at the entrance.
Also used throughout the home are stained glass, arches, and colored lighting. Pillows, carpets, and varied accessories complete the finishing touches in every room of the house.
Intricately carved wooden architectural details and Moroccan style lamps are just some of the features that all work together to make this home very special.
Instead the home is warm, welcoming, and comfortable.
Angawi designed the house to fully take advantage of the prevailing winds in Jeddah, which naturally flow from the north and the west, to keep the air stream circulating throughout the entire house much of the year. This cuts down on the need for air conditioning in this hot climate.
The living space in this home is maximized and made good use of, with nooks and crannies used for built in seating areas, planters, and even a rooftop garden.
Angawi graciously opens his amazing home to visitors mainly arranged through special group tours.
