Residence with landscaping 

Mashud’s residence, a six storied multiple family residence, is the first building in Sylhet metropolitan designed by 98° architectural studio. The project comprises 2 living units at each level and Parking facilities are arranged at the ground level.

The site is located at a corner plot in the newly developed township “Upashahar”. It faces an open and vast green field at the front side. The design solution allows you to enjoy the open ground from each living unit. The ground level has been kept open by omitting opaque boundaries to extend the surrounding landscape into the building. The intention is to make the building a symbolic part of the immediate context. At the southern section a small sky court with double height will break the monotony of the roadside and also will act as medium of socialization within the living units.

Vertical landscaping with roof top garden is designed to achieve psychological as well as thermal comfort in the warm-humid climate of Bangladesh. The project is intended to start in October 2008 and will be complete with in next year.
