The lawn with fruit and flower trees

The lush green lawn was larger in size and was landscaped with different types of fruits and flower trees. After the property division, the front part of this lawn was inherited by another sibling of Mr. Irteza Chowdhury who built a multistoried apartment building there. Currently, the lawn can be enjoyed from the east and west side. The surrounding greenery still envelopes the house and creates a unique relation between nature and the built spaces. This lawn works as a breathing space for the occupants in many ways. In fact, one of the current occupants of the house, the mother-in-law of Mr. Irteza Chowdhury who has been living here for some time now, walks around the lawn and sometimes sits in the open space on the quiet west side to say her prayers.
