Bhola House

Bhola District, Bangladesh
Private Client
Design Development

Bhola House is a single-family residence, designed for a small family, where accessibility and health are of utmost concern. With accessibility in mind, the house is a single story with a comfortable floor to ceiling height. Also located on-site is a separate, smaller structure, for a full-time nurse and caretaker.  The project site is located in the Ganges Delta off the Bay of Bengal in the Bhola District of Bangladesh. Due to the hot and humid climate, the form of the structure is calibrated to maximize the potential for natural ventilation through a series of perforations. Courtyards are scattered throughout the building mass to provide year-round passive heating, cooling, and daylighting opportunities.
