your project look nice and it brings innovative solution for promote tradition of your country, which is really important. In your next work i recommend you to deeper analyse of master plan. The important thing is to involve context of country around and bring its advantages into your design. Your architectural design is nice. Keep working !
Dear Pavol Pilař,
Thank you so much for your input. This was my graduation project. Keep me in your prayers. Take care ?
the project is very nicely integrated into the landscape. The connection with nature also brings great responsibility with regard to sustainability. What i propose is to use Cradle to Cradle Certified® technology. The Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard is the world’s leading science-based and rigorous norm for designing and manufacturing safe, circular and responsible materials and products.

If you will need support to prepare specification for bathrooms, let me know.
Dear Martin Stibor,
thank you so much for your inputs. This is a conceptual idea of how the space can be designed since its my academic thesis project. However, if theres any opportunity comes up for this project to be actually built, I will definitely take your advices on the product specifications. Thank you for your time
it is always good to try to make the life of each of others better. The concept of the celebration the Tea research institute by ronovating the existing facilities is amazing idea. I very like that you are traing to combine new elements to make the Tea research institute more atractive and usefull for the whole population. It is also a good idea to divide the Tea cultivaton zones to zones and subzones, it will spred the visitors around whole place. For the start it is very good work, please focus on functionality, researching, analysing and detailing.
All the best, keep up a good work.
Dear Roman Janda,
Thank you so much for your insights. I do have much more details and analysis of this project. If i could reach to the semi final. I will have the opportunity to showcase more of my design philosophies. I am really grateful that you took your time and studied my project. Keep me in your prayers. I wish to go beyond my capabilities
Tea has been an integral part of global culture for centuries. This beverage is widely consumed throughout different cultures on different occasions. The practice of tea consumption and production is notably significant in Bangladesh as well.
The existing Tea research Institute was established in 1947 at Sreemangal, Sylhet. The facility has been functioning as the sole research institute on production and distribution of tea for 72years. The project aims to redevelop the research facility from a contemporary architectural standpoint with a prioritized expansion of tourism facilities that would enable people to explore the industry by experiencing the opulence of the process and the culture of the tea production process.
The whole facility will be redesigned to accommodate better functionality and signify the concept of tea celebration by renovating the existing facilities and combining new elements to let the users adhere to the spirit of tourism and the research process. The new facility will consist of a plaza, a tea museum, an amphitheater, a greenhouse, Tong modules. accessible tea cultivation zones and the renovated research institution.
• Tea cultivation zones will be divided into three main zones according to their ability to cultivate certain types of teas. Each of the zones will consist of two sub-zones.
• The abandoned mill will be transformed into a tea museum which will consist of exhibition centers and souvenirs shops.
• The researchers will be needing semi-outdoor spaces for the simulation process. Therefore, the windows are grooved to create shaded pockets that will provide the spaces for simulation.
• The facility will be formatted in a zig-zag position to accommodate proper cross ventilation by following the regulation set by the standard of the United Nation.
• 12 tong-like modules will be designed throughout the 6 cultivation zones where researchers will conduct different experiments, tea-labors will measure tea-leaves and users can stop, have tea and experience the research and production process by themselves.
The project aims to create a dialogue amongst the researchers, tea-workers and general people through the connectivity of the spaces in the facility.
The existing institute is located 66.25 km from Sylhet town and almost 3.8 km from Sreemangal. The maximum elevation of the site can be seen from the outside, which is 194 feet high and the lowest elevation is 119 feet. As of this moment, only one entry is accessible for the users.
Site Area : 49.44 acre
