Client: Courtyard Limited

Status: In progress

Size: 20,00,000 sq ft I 11.78 acres

The Courtyard project is set in the politically challenging socio-cultural context of the Bangladeshi culture, which requires innovation as it accommodates a global business model, but also introversion in terms of interaction, climate and security – all within the framework of the workplace typology. The building’s concept is the ‘purdah’ (veil), its external skin is a jaali screen derived from patterns of Islamic architecture. This façade filters light and regulates temperature within the building whilst ensuring the desired levels of privacy and security. The veil opens just slight enough for people to know that there is a world beyond, and Landscape celebrates the ceremony of moving through this enclosure, marking a progression from the chaos of the city towards the serenity of the inner world. The landscape subtly carries the backbone of spiritualism, of the ceremony of moving through this enclosure, a place to contemplate and rejuvenate. Yet, it responds diagrammatically to a modern graphic language of an urbanscape. It arrives at a common vocabulary: of a corporate minimalism, replete with tradition and memory to reflect the Bangladeshi identity, ensuring users feel like a part of the global community.
