The ambassador’s residential area in the embassy was developed in 1993-1998 The complex designed by architectural firm Nikken Sekkei is designed as a mix of Japanese forms and local planning style around a central courtyard. The landscape follows the same principle of using Japanese style with local plant material. The gardens are designed with free flowing forms and varying textures, to make a canvas which recreates nature.

The minimalist use of natural stones & boulders reinforce this impact. A dry stream runs through the garden as a life line with splashes of water at places.

The tea courtyard is designed with white hibiscus plants & boulders to create a tranquil effect while the central court has a strong boulder balancing a lone china orange tree.
