Teach For Bangladesh by Studio Dhaka

Project: Teach For Bangladesh
Design: Studio Dhaka
Principal Architect: Muhammad Muniruzzaman
Location: Gulshan-Niketon Link Road, Bangladesh

Discover "Studio Dhaka," a unique architectural masterpiece in the heart of Dhaka city, captured through the lens of renowned photographer, Asif Salman. Standing out amidst the concrete high-rises, this environment-friendly edifice breathes life through its natural resources like trees, plants, sun, wind, rain, and shadows. Completed in 2017, Studio Dhaka celebrates sustainability with gas-burnt bricks, corrugated CI & plastic sheets, custom-made steel frames, and cement finish floors, offering a refreshing counterpoint to the city's corporate skyline. Explore the building's ingenious design that minimizes circulation, creating semi-open spaces adorned with natural and man-made landscapes, including an amphitheater and a lily pond. Each pod in the structure doubles as a workspace and a common area, inviting interactive sessions, meetings, or quiet reflection amidst a backdrop of nature. From preserving the existing trees to designing seating arrangements under the tree canopies, Studio Dhaka truly weaves nature into its architectural narrative. Enjoy the lively outdoor space, perfect for discussions, meetings, or just soaking in the tranquil atmosphere. Embrace the contrast of this eco-friendly structure in a concrete jungle, a testament to innovative and sustainable design.
