dc.description.abstractCurrent metropolitan planning in Saudi Arabia has led to a specific housing type. In order to provide isolation the metropolitan housing design has become very close and confined. This confinement has made the metropolitan house lacking in the feeling of open space, gradual transition from the public to the private domains, and the connection with the natural environment. In this study a non-conventional design of metropolitan housing is introduced. In this design are revealed the elements of the ideal metropolitan house that are absent in the typical design.en_US
