Shanta Properties Ltd.
The 13 Storied exclusive residential building is a unique blend of climatically responsive architecture and aesthetics that conforms to boldness while imparting an architecture that is distinctively pleasing. The 2 building masses works as an expression of the 2 units. The 2 units per floor and the shape of the site guided an L-Shaped plan that created a lawn that will be enjoyed by the 2 units while maximizing the area of building exterior.
This maximized exterior surface would facilitate the interplay of natural lighting and ventilation which has been created by the dissolving walls (planes) from solid to openness. The fragmentation of walls to the east facing the lawn would be an unparalleled design feature of the building never attempted before, which along with the boxed balconies to the north which somewhat would be the identifying elements for the units. These boxes would be expressed with wood/ wood like materials to be enhanced with further tactile quality. All these together would identify this building in Dhaka’s urban landscape.
