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.
My main objective was to improve PASSENGER EXPERIENCE and provide a space ingretated with the surounding lush greenaries. I zoned the areas according to their functional requirements cut SLITS of vegetation between them thus providing the passengers a space for RELIEF AFTER STRESSFUL LONG QUEUES. The bays connecting the separate masses will serve as a relaxation and socializing zone for passengers.360DEGREES runway view from the departure lounges is achieved through JUXTAPOSITIONING the height of the masses and creates a FORM BASED HIERARCHY AND UNIQUES VISTAS from different parts of the terminal.The service areas of the terminal receives ample sunlight thus providing a HEALTHY WORKING SPACE for the employees.
At the heart of Oriental Parade facing a waterfront promenade and sandy beaches we thought what could be more artistic than the Sea itself to exhibit. So, we wanted to create a space that can exhibit the vibrant rhythm of Wellington Bay Harbour. We thought of sub framing the panoramic view of the harbour and its beauty with a single frame. The site pleads an organic form which catches the lively relation between sea and its surrounding topology of Wellington. Fluidity of the sea is embodied through the form. The proposition tries to incorporate contemporary built form with the fluid nature of the bay. The space has no specific function but could be used as anything the community claims. It intends to provide a place for spending a quality time immersed in the spirit of nature. We opted to re-establish the intimacy between sea and urban life by breaking the barrier created by concrete and asphalt. Through the creation of sublimity and a sense of purity the homogeneous structure creates an opportunity to perceive the meaning of life in a different note engulfed by the vastness of nature.
