A part of a fifty-year-old row house was “reduced” to create a lawn garden, and the remaining interior of the building is used as an earthen floor connected to the garden on the first floor and a Japanese-style room behind it, and as a living room on the second floor.

Open the sliding gate and go inside. The stone cladding of the former front porch is still in place.
This is the exterior of the house after it was reduced. The old single-story part in the front was removed and replaced with a lawn garden. The exterior walls were painted in their previous form. You can see a few traces of the flat roof on the exterior walls.
The garden, created by demolishing a single-story house, is seen from the second floor. Between the grassy plaza and the road are trees that bloom in all seasons. The block wall between it and the road has been lowered slightly and mortared.
