Hashem Real Estate Ltd.
This 14-storied building with one basement is a residential complex located in the posh neighborhood of Gulshan. The site is adjacent to the Gulshan Lake, blessing the residents with a view of the city reserved for a lucky few. Two apartment units on each floor are designed spaciously with luxurious rooms, family spaces and balconies protruding the front façade, with a view of the front lawn. The considerable setback from the property line from the main street is a rare feature in Dhaka these days, creating a quality space to breathe in and experience the totality of design and architectural poetry.
The form expresses the two units as individual blocks interconnected with a louvered screen, while glass facades engulfed within folded concrete plates form the overall architectural composition. Brick and wood express the warmth of a home alongside the openness that is conveyed by a full glass façade.
