house in waga-zaimokuza

japanese practice architect cafe has sent us images of 'house in waga-zaimokuza', 
a two and a half storey dwelling in a densely populated neighbourhood of japan. 
seeking to provide a generous living space despite the small lot, the house features 
an elevated outdoor garden that opens up the living and dining space.
