Making Contimporary Dwelling Affordable

Auther : Ali S. O. Bahammam

     The Saudi housing policies in the five years development plans emphasize enabling all Saudi households to have access to adequate residential accommodation at reasonable costs.  However, the large size of the villa dwelling (the most prevalent type of contemporary dwelling) has made the cost of owning a dwelling unaffordable for the households within the Saudi households’ average income.  A previous study has shown that the villa-type contemporary dwelling is Saudi Arabia is the largest according to its size and number of elements per members of household, when compared to other dwelling from different countries in the world.

     This study aims to analyze the size and elements of the villa-type contemporary dwelling and to determine the solutions and procedures, which can be applied to make it affordable, fulfil the Saudi households’ needs, and match their financial capability.  The study has shown that there is exaggeration in the size and components of the contemporary dwelling, according to the average household’s size, especially when compared with the public housing prototype in Al-Ahsaa.  It has also shown that with some adjustment to the size and components of the contemporary dwelling in accordance with the household size, we can reach an affordable dwelling that meets the average household’s income.
