Year Build: 2013

Description

The Shapla Building was named in recognition of Bangladesh’s national flower and the design of the façade. Its environment-friendly features include solar panelling that will provide 10% of the building’s electricity supply. The linear layout of the building allows a larger open space for better orientation and views towards the building when approached from the entrance. Main entrance facade design based on the traditional Bangladeshi embroidery pattern 'Nolok Taga' becomes the defining feature of the design. Office layout allows for flexibility of working areas.

Charuta Private Ltd, was chosen to be the contractor in the construction of Department For International Development (DFID) building in the British High Commission Premises.

The building was designed by renowned architecture firm, VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd.
