Even the road in this village is only 4.5 m. wide which limited an one way transportation, every house was built with 8-10m. setback in the front ,for being a yard and growing a big tree for shading, as a green corridor. This characteristic of this village was always used as a place where neighbors are gathering and the kids are playing under a big tree.

Designing phase started when the owner decided to keep an open space in the front, to be a green area. So the whole setback area was designed as a multipurpose area which can be used for parking up to 4 cars. Grass pave was installed for the floor to absorb the rain water. Next to the parking, sliding lath fence is constructed, invites a friendly atmosphere, as well as an eyes on street while people from inside and outside can see each other through the fence which makes a whole community become more livable.
