This is an old style of gathering place for old men in Jeddah city especially in the afternoon. It called (Merkaz). Most of the people recognise this as part of the identity of the city. Some people still using this (Merkaz) in front of their villa when the weather is cool which I believe have a strong meaning and attachment to the old city context.  An image to show the type of gathering in the past click here.
