Vacation House at Faridabad

Vacation House at Faridabad

Stage: Completed in 2009
Location: Faydabad, Uttara, Dhaka
Client: Mr. Mahboob Ahmed
Architect: Marina Tabassum

Faidabad is located in the northern fringe of Dhaka, one of the fastest growing densely populated cities in the world. People living in the city quite often look for retreat in the outskirts for peace and quiet. This was the program for this small weekend house that began with the idea of two room temporary house and turned into a small villa of two bedroom. Four courts on four corner conceived as outdoor rooms define the form. The entrance porch is a vibrant gathering space where the client greets the locals on her weekend visits. The central atrium is double height in volume with glass roof, a space for cozy family gatherings. Upper floor except a bedroom remains mostly open and semi open leisure spaces to connect with nature.
