Excavating the backfilling soil around the east and west sides of the lighting well to the same height as the garden, reducing the height of the lighting well. The original lighting well is 3 meters higher than the courtyard, causing the courtyard to be incomplete and the front courtyard to be disconnected, resulting in poor indoor lighting. After renovation, the front and back of the courtyard were connected and the structure was complete, completely liberating the lighting and ventilation of the original underground floor, becoming a real garden layer. The lighting of the original second underground floor was greatly improved. The original kitchen and dining room were on the first floor. After solving the lighting and ventilation issues in the garden floor, the kitchen, dining room, and living room are all moved to the garden floor.The dining room is transformed into an open to below space, plus the open to below space in the living room, in this way, the longest living space as garden floor, first floor, and second floor will have good cyclone flow. Dining on the garden floor adds a lot of picnic-like fun , making it closer to nature, and family communication in the living room.
