AbstractThis research paper investigates the spatial form of traditional and modern Qatari houses and embedded socio-cultural patterns which have influenced the development of housing in Qatar over the past decades. The methodology for the investigation of socio-cultural patterns embedded into traditional and modern houses is based on space syntax supported by visualisation techniques. The findings reveal that specific requirements such as: 1) privacy; 2) gender segregation; and 3) hospitality are determining the spatial form of both vernacular and modern housing. In turn, the findings contribute towards the development of architectural identity, including social sustainability, for the urban regeneration of the built environment in Qatar.
