When I think of Bangladesh by association I think of curry, Bollywood movies and Shahrukh Khan the actor. While I know there is poverty there I chose to see the good things it has to offer. So when I found this project I was pleased to see something inside Bangladesh that the residents would want to show off.
The structure had multiple stories with green spaces and a ground floor water area. While I shiver all over with the possibilities. I wonder just how much work would go into maintaining a place like that. Then I see the multiple view points, the enclosed privacy cocooned spaces and I stop caring and start loving. I can even forgive the concrete.
I might have to do more research on these architects because they are sensitive to both the client and the surrounding site. They also do it in a realistic and beautiful way.
