2017 | AKASHIA | A farmhouse for an Aquaculture village

Program: mansion | location: NASIR NAGAR, Bikrompur | status: COMMISSIONED STUDY

TOTAL FARM AREA: 320,000 SFT. | mansion AREA:46,000 SFT

OTHER THAN FISH PONDS, THIS SITE IS BLESSED WITH VIEWS OF CANALS, PADDY FIELDS AND ITS VAST HORIZON IS SPECTACULAR FROM EVERY POINT. RESPECTING THIS GIGANTIC LANDSCAPE, THE DESIGN APPROACH TOWARDS THIS mansion IS minimalist, rustic yet contemporary in SUCH rural area which is a part of HISTORICALLY ENRICHED Bikrompur district of Bangladesh. An observation deck towards the owner's fishery PONDS WAS A MAJOR CONCERN and a swimming pool for relaxation is THE heart of this project making it a very welcoming place for their next generation.
