Found: The Ugliest House in Kuwait – “Villa Akbar”


A friend told me there is a very ugly house in Miseela, extremely ugly, and when I passed by I was shocked. I know different people have different tastes but there is no excuse for this atrocity of a house. I feel really bad for the neighbors, they have to live next to this eye sore day in and day out. Its horrid and just looking at it makes you feel nauseated, I can’t believe the amount of statues they have and what they have painted to the outer wall.

I think someone would be doing the world a favor if it was demolished. I can’t believe somebody really paid to have this built, and they named it Villa Akbar.

    I just want to comment on the person who said “floos-hom o kaifhom” .. well yeah, but no!

    Eye pollution hun.. Eye pollution..

  2. Hi Marzouq

    I just saw the pics of the horribly designed house. Its grotesque to say the least! Well I was thinking, I have been looking to feature a Kuwaiti house (a tastefully done up one, needless to say) in my blog. Could you put me on to someone who has a nice house? I would prefer it to be a traditional looking one, with a courtyard, et al.

    I know Kuwaitis value their privacy, so I will totally understand if you refuse. But please, please, if you can help me, do help me. The world and the Internet is starved of what Arabic interiors look like. I spent a few months in Kuwait, and I know that the world needs to get educated on this.

    Many thanks,
    Look forward to your reply

    This was our house, before it was like this, it used to be a normal big house, 3abbas Akbar bought it from us for his gay son, so u can say this is a gay persons house :P

    Who lives in that house is irrelevant. Making such narrow-minded remarks makes you all seem shallow.

    Marzouq
    since this post has attracted so much international interest, you should also post about houses you find beautiful in Kuwait (again, irrelevant who lives there)

  17. oshkosh

    this house is probably hunted, ghosts like these kind of houses ..
    and am positive that it would look freakishly scary in the night with no lights on ..

  18. Katukoa

    This house takes the overall bad taste of the Kuwaiti house owners to its climax, in other words, it is no different from ANY other Kuwaiti house but it just takes it to the extreme.

  19. mahmoud marafie

    naaah its no hunted i lived there for more than a decade. It is different compared to other kuwaiti houses, you should’ve of seen it before it became transformed into this

  20. lulu

    Ya it really looks like these hunted houses in scary movies.. Simplicity is the Best :P

  21. Sephi

    LOOOL!!! ROFL!
    8a6ee3a this house is so fugly! What’s with the columns on the roof, ya rab?! Columns are structural devices, meant to support buildings’ ceilings. What the hell was the point of putting them on the roof?!
    It’s such a mishmash of styles. It’s like he found all the things considered beautiful or prestigious in the world and put them all on one house. It’s like the definition of pretentious and showing off. The best part is that it looks like shit!
    Honestly I feel bad for anybody who finds this house appealing, or who has to see it or has to live in it ;P

    7amdellah 6ela3t min il bait gubla it turns chethee :P

  30. Bashi Delica

    Those are really old pictures .. I think the house is amazing ..
    I so wanna live in it T_T status and drawing and sculptures are
    Ravishing ! I keep wondering if the house is that beautiful from the outside
    Then what’s it like from the inside !

    “Opinions are like butts everybody gottem !” the point is ..that you are allowed
    To express your opinions but thrs a difference between expressing ur opinion and shoving your opinion
    Down someone’s throat .. That dude is hella rich .
    His money + his property . So why are you guys hating on it ..
    Oh well the ” majority” of kuwaitis like the same style .. Same designs , same everything same cars
    Same clothes ! Same style and if you don’t follow under those they are willing to put you under the spot light
    And stare at you as if you’re naked .. -.-” ever thought the owner might be a great loving person ?
    And he has a good ass reason behind the designs and sculptures
    Around his house ? .. Its unique enough to bring your attention to read the whole post, google it and go see it usrselves .
    I think the house looks beautiful . Its already considered special among the rest since it already stands among the rest :D and if this in ( in your opinion ) the ugliest house in kuwait ? based on what ? What research? What survey ?
    Take a look at ur house first .. Stop judging to you guys this is a weird uss ugly house .. Did you ever think that to him its just simply (HOME) .. Let him be .
    *sigh* the way ppl think and react .. Still amazes me . T.c ya’all god bless

    Could this be Michael Jackson’s weekend Kuwait getaway?

  32. Lyn

    I guess the owner of this fabulous house was very artistc which is i love it! This house full of art and more antics uh! really expensive.

  33. I don’t find it ugly at all….I think it’s very unique and different.

  34. Ms LiZa

    They say that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” what’s beautiful to some, it’s ugly to others….

    Umm… I think its cool. Obviously they’ve got money, whatever. Anything different from the box cutter houses I see everyday is an improvement. It’s a surprise to see how astoundingly opinionated you all are.

    kind of rich because look how big the house
    is. But the only coment I am going to
    add is that if the guy was moslim my advise
    would be dont put the statues thier because
    it is 7ram
