Located in a prime business zone, only a few kilometres away from the Dhaka International Airport, is the trapezoidal site. The complex was intended to be rented out to prime multinational corporate brands & thus the design has ample allowance for flexible building services & BMS. The design also takes care of incremental growth made possible by gradual generation of revenue.
Considering the hot & humid climate of Dhaka, and the immense annual rainfall, it was imperative that the volumes of the phased development create an internalized microclimate.
The entire built mass is envisioned to be screened off on east & west sides with a contemporized interpretation of the traditional Islamic mesh screen. Built mass is retained on the East-West orientations and a central courtyard running througH North-South allowing for wind circulation is carved off the total massing. A series of interconnected building volumes that stagger off as arms of the main edge buildings allow for individual terrace spill outs.
