shatotto constructs mamun residence, a private concrete oasis
dhaka-based practice shatotto has completed the ‘mamun residence’ in the tropical city of chittagong, in the south of bangladesh. climate and wind factors played heavily into the design, resulting in a sturdy exposed folding concrete structure that forms natural barriers against the elements at the same time it opens up to create pockets of open air spaces that enjoy good weather days. thriving gardens are integrated into the household acting as a natural insulator over the concrete surfaces and adds greenery to the domestic environment. upon leaving the street level, the elevated pool becomes the center of the household within an open yet private courtyard that many of the social spaces of the home look out onto. deep overhangs allow for floor to ceiling glass walls protected from direct sunlight and open up for plenty of ventilation.
