Street view with central hall house. This street-accompanying development shows a local variation (of the Qalamun Mountains) of a house form known from Lebanon since mid of the 19th century: shaded entrance hall with an entrance arcade of three arches on round columns on the ground floor, above it on the upper floor a repetition as open seating area. Stone façade made of cleanly carved limestone and slender arched windows. On the upper floor, a balcony extends over the entire facade. These houses will probably be built in the first quarter of the twentieth century.
