The site for the project was in Gilachora, Sylhet in the close vicinity of Hakaluki haor. In the midst of blissful nature I tried to create a simple and humble home that doesn’t impose on the existing landscape ,rather be a backdrop from where you can indulge yourself into nature itself.

The homestead consists of three separate blocks that comprises to make a village “Uthan” where families gather,children play and all the social activities occur.This uthan is the main focal point of the home and can be easily accessed from all three blocks.

I drew my inspiration from Akbar’s “fatehpur Sikri” which uses passage ways to connect various buildings and maintain privacy.The living quarters will enjoy privacy in the backyards as well as easy access to Uthan.
