RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A residence is a place where family members live together. The objective was to design a sustainable and contextual single-family residence. Most of the peoples in Bangladesh have passed their childhood in the village or have some attachments in the village. Because of the increasing population, village people are migrating to the urban area to make their living. As Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh, it has become the most densely populated and polluted city. The design research was done in Dhaka city about what can be done to make living space more sustainable. People in Bangladesh are used to certain kinds of spaces like semi-outdoor spaces, open courtyard, shaded space, ponds which are mainly common in rural places. Based on data, it can be suggested that designing spaces like terrace gardens on different floors, semi-outdoor spaces, open courtyard, pond, and deck in residence can be useful to achieve self-sustainability which will create an ecosystem in the site itself. It will protect the people living in residence from pollution and increase physical activity.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge of this project was to design a sustainable space in one of the most populated, polluted, and busiest cities in Bangladesh. Historically and socially people in Bangladesh are used to spending most of their time in semi-outdoor spaces, courtyards, decks which are mainly common in rural places. Increasing population, global warming other factors forced people to migrate towards cities that have poorly planned buildings. Because of the increasing population, there is a shortage of green space in the city. Dhaka city's common problems are the increase in water pollution, traffic congestion, air and noise pollution, solid waste disposal, black smoke, etc. Designing a self-sustainable residence will give the client opportunity to come closer to nature and will boost his productivity.
