Dhanmondi Lake development was an attempt to embody an urban oasis to provide relief in the concrete cityscape. A planned endeavor with economic feasibility for a positive impact on the urban setting was perceived for the lake development. This intention has been achieved through restoration, conservation and preservation of nature, water body management and promoting accessibility around the lake and improving traffic circulation.
The concept was to invite people to protect the lake from encroachment, creating a buffer zone between the allotted residential plots and the lake. The façade morphology was reversed, with the front of the building facing the lake. Hence, the neighborhood is transformed into an accessible public realm through the inclusion of a recreational area, inviting people from all over the city.
