Another building trend that is emerging in new houses is the use of red tile roofing for areas such as patios, carports and stairwells. The roofing seems to have a very Asian flare to it and reminds me very much of temples or pagodas in South East Asia. It’s not a style that I would necessary term as Arabic and I’m not entirely sure that it fits in with the rest of the style of the house (but that’s just my opinion).
Anyway I had to share a photo of this one particular house in Wadi Musa. It seems that people world over can suffer a case of “keeping up with the Jones” or whatever the neighbours do I will do it bigger and better.
And please tell me you can see the resemblance to an Asian temple.
