Dekko LEED Gold Garment Factory, Bangladesh

LOCATION – Bangladesh
SITE  EXTENT Р101,975  Sq.m.


The site is approximately 50km from Dhaka close to a suburban village surrounded by beautiful paddy fields. The site has two accesses which helped mould the basic design flow.

The Concept was to create a floating set of pavilions  interconnected with bridges and tied down by a flying curved roof. The design is a futuristic image of a large set of kites hovering across vast green paddy fields.

The roof is held up with large span steel space-frames and trusses also allowing natural light to flow from the central long countyard,

The Dekko Group is a multinational based in Bangladesh with many production facilities of varied types and a fast growing Company. The Client was willing to move away from the traditional Factory Architecture and try a new contemporary approach to design. Located abutting a large paddy low line area the building has been design to allow the water to fill around it during the rainy season making the building look like its floating.

This project received the Platinum LEED Rating from the USGBC
