Cafe Mango Continued...


On closer inspection, one can observe the great attention to detail given by Salauddin Ahmed in each corner. His accumulated collection of reclaimed furniture, artworks and artefacts add a touch of personality to the space.

Curated elements like window panels, small bamboo models, Buddhist sculpture etc serve as points of interest and subvert the overall interior design direction.
Even the facility toilets have been painted with vibrant rickshaw art by local rickshaw painter Pappu. In many ways, the design of Cafe Mango is an ode to local craftsmanship that promotes the work of traditional artisans. “I’m keener to make others understand the people who are involved in these jobs. I will quietly introduce and reveal them to you through my design”, explains Salauddin Ahmed.

The colour tone of Cafe Mango was kept neutral in black and brown with pops of red, blue and yellow ochre in some nooks. Greens and foliage are strewed throughout the place to bring the outdoor in. In terms of lighting, the ground floor is kept well-lit while as you move up, the setting becomes more subdued. In the design of Cafe Mango, Salauddin Ahmed has left more possibilities to add, subtract and build up whatever is required to make the place more meaningful. His objective as an architect is to always give scope to the end-users to participate and also help them uncover the hidden possibilities that a place may hold.

Finely Detailed- ORO
Photo of Naila Binte Zakaria Naila Binte ZakariaFebruary, 2021
Amalgamating contemporary cuisines from Europe, the neighbourhood eatery ORO located at the Gulshan Avenue oozes with glorious personality. With a multilayered and sensible interior, designed by the owner himself, the place takes its guest on an artful journey that is not only a feast for the taste buds but also for the other senses.

The name ‘Oro’ translates as ‘gold’ in Spanish and is indeed a golden find like its name suggests. The flavour profiles of ORO is a culmination of the owner’s travels to different restaurants of the world and his attempt to offer the patrons a taste of these distant places with every carefully crafted and exquisitely plated dishes. Classic recipes from around the world are served using skills and techniques developed in collaboration with chefs from Argentina, Mexico, Spain, Singapore and Japan. ORO gives you the ideal setting to savour an array of scrumptious offerings such as homemade pasta, seafood or steak specialities, fresh salad or the ever-changing weekly specials. Exceptional presentation is exemplified by dishes like the Grilled Snow Fish, Wagyu Steak, Japanese Style Duck Breast, Pan Seared & Smoked Pacific Octopus. You may even spot the owner lending hands in the kitchen which demonstrates his passion to serve the guests tasteful gourmet dishes. “Our balanced menu comprises of delicious entrees and European classics. Besides, our team can even work with the guests to create a bespoke menu suiting their requirements. We invite our diners to pause and linger in the company of family and friends, as we guide them through refreshing culinary adventure, unlike any other in Dhaka”, the owner explains.

As the restaurant is a spatial representation of the owner’s journey, the design is quite idiosyncratic, taking inspiration from eclectic styles with hints of Eastern detailing.

Upon entrance, diners are greeted with a surprisingly light and airy space, spread over an expanse of 1800 sq ft (approx). “The emphasis was given on a natural palette and materials that lends subtle inspiration from Sri Lankan heritage. The dominant warm hues chosen for the walls and floors showcase the shades commonly found in old Sri Lankan architecture”. To his favour, the space was previously laid out in a way he desired. “I always wanted an open kitchen for an immersive dining experience. My work was made easy as this place was set up just how I envisioned it! The creative process was hence quite organic, where I simply translated my taste into the design”, he adds.
Several wooden elements were implemented to create a sense of comfort and warmth. The open-kitchen dining counter at the ground floor adds to the theatrical element, as the chef demonstrates his cooking techniques for the seated guests in the restaurant. A discreet spiral staircase made of brass leads the guests to the upper floor, which can be booked for private dining. An abundance of greenery instils a tropical vibe and is evocative of Sri Lanka’s lush green forests and warm climate.
To create a space that tells a story, many custom furnishings and reclaimed items were used in the space. Vintage chairs and tables were given new meaning within a modern context, embodying both traditional and modern values. In a way, the design of ORO is an ode to local craftsmen and artisans as they were commissioned to furnish every detail that brings the place together. A local artisan built the bespoke brass staircase and partitions while the wooden sculpture at the entrance was made by a local carpenter.
The owner’s admiration for contextual art is demonstrated through the wondrous mural art extended from the walls to the ceilings, skillfully done by artist Ashraful Hasan.
In addition, rattan colander baskets were installed on the ceilings and walls to serve the function of both soundproofing and concealing pipes. Large artworks by young artist Sultan Ishtiaque bring a touch of colour against the warm, earthy setting. All these minutiae add a unique flair to the design of the space. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the front allow a spectacular view of the large circular fountain and the busy city street. All in all, the textures, shapes and colours fused together at ORO create a sensory experience for its guests.

Indulge in the Finest – Laughing Buddha
Photo of Tasmiah Chowdhury Tasmiah ChowdhuryDecember, 2020
The newly-set finest authentic Thai restaurant Laughing Buddha situated at Gulshan North Avenue invites eateries to enter an intimate yet eclectic hub. Its inclusive interior offers a culmination of grey rustic finishes and luxurious furnishings, as well as a touch of wood that adds warmth to the overall design.

The fine-dining eatery boasts authentic Thai cuisine experience in Dhaka made by their very own Thai chefs, making their way long from Changmai, Thailand.
  • Farazi Ghani and Nayeemun Nabi Azad
The ambience and menu of the restaurant are right on, definite and original. Starting with the wholesome staple food of Thailand, Tom Yum Chicken Noodle soup or the Hot and Sour Beef soup, one can dip their taste buds to their addictive blend of fresh flavours. Offerings like the Stir-Fried Lobster or the mouthwatering clay pot dishes let food enthusiasts indulge in an unforgettable authentic Thai food experience. The high-end restaurant is founded by very young restaurateur partners, Farazi Ghani and Nayeemun Nabi Azad. For Farazi, doing a desk job is not his rapport. He looked into building something for himself. After failing a millionth time at some random ventures, Farazi and Nayeemun, best friends now cum business partners, initiated to try their luck on one thing they both love, food. “I love to eat, and Nayeem loves to cook, and our favourite cuisine is Thai. The thought of the restaurant really excited us, and then we worked on putting things to place. We have our roles divided into looking after different aspects of the restaurant,” says Farazi. “We never compromise on taste, hospitality, quality of food or in décor; we are largely involved in the whole process of our restaurant business”.

The interior design is done by Ar. Sudeshna S Chowdhury, partner of DOT Architects and Ar. Nazila. They focused on presenting a complete visual experience through zoning and flow, where the clean and overall palette of the interior is dominated by dark and neutral colour which is complemented by pop of dark blue and deep green tone upholsters, in order to highlight the sense of space and zoning through the simple and warm tones. The interior brought edgy, streamlined furniture accent sofas and some more modest pieces of armchair and dinner tables, all that brings more sumptuous, luxurious and formal feel. The only metal chosen to enhance the decor is golden. Minute details of the furnishing are edged in gold-hued metal, creating something grandiose and illustrious. In addition, different lighting fixtures have been spruced up in different sections. The shimmering bling of the ornate light fixture adds an immediate drama and style to the place. Apart from this, the whole space uses a variety of arrangements and sitting scenarios where everyone can find a comfortable place to suit their taste. A u-shaped sofa-deck for a large company is placed at one corner of the hall, and along the walls, there are comfy and plush seaters for four and two. One of the interesting sections of the restaurant is the lotus wall with a boat placed centrally so that it becomes the focal point. With the starry ceiling and mirrors, it gives this section a cosy and dreamy ambience.
The name of the restaurant is derived from the statue of ‘Laughing Buddha’, generally attributed to be of Chinese origin, based upon some Chinese folktales of the 10th century. The cult of the Laughing Buddha is not confined to China, but with different nomenclatures, it also extensively pervades in many other countries, including Thailand. Like many other, the owners Farazi and Nayeemun believe the idol will prove to be the harbinger of good fortune and prosperity. And, this belief has been worthwhile; the restaurant is getting an incredible response for its authentic flavours and supreme setting.

Retreat amidst the Hustle – The Courtyard at Park Heights
Photo of Tasmiah Chowdhury Tasmiah Chowdhury

The Courtyard at Park Heights restaurant located in the heart of Dhanmondi brings a rare retreat amidst the daily hustle and bustle. It has two significant functions: an art gallery and a multi-concept restaurant. The lounge-inspired space also serves as an ideal venue to display paintings and sculptures during exhibitions. With a rock pool beside the gallery, the eatery combines an environment that is alluring and intimate.

The Courtyard at Park Heights is the second restaurant project of Bay Developments Ltd. The venture began its journey back in 1990 by architect Iftekhar A. Khan. With a team of hundreds of members, today Bay has footprints in real estate business, building maintenance and logistics, F & B projects, and as well fine art ventures. The Courtyard at Park Heights was launched in October 2019 and its interior design is done by InterStudio, Bay’s in-house design team. Since its launch, it has become a go-to destination for the Dhanmondi locals that bring together the passion for food and art with an exciting ambience. Covering 5,200 square feet, the restaurant includes spacious seating, kitchen, drink station and an exclusive courtyard. As soon the guests enter the restaurant, they indulge in the panoramic experience. Its open-plan has large and spacious seating arrangements, surrounded by gardens, an open courtyard, murals, gallery walls and all the essential amenities.
In the day time, diffused natural light is borrowed from the glass-covered patio.
The designers also took advantage of the view to the south- palm trees swaying against the southern sky above the park next door.
“We aimed to create a pleasant destination that combined a chic eatery with a patio that doubled as a sculpture gallery. We set the tone with a surprise water feature, to help guests transit from the busy street into this retreat”, says Saffat Sanin, lead architect of InterStudio. “We went for an urban-chic theme, by offsetting the hard-grey of the fair face concrete structure with the soft salmon of recycled handmade bricks. Then we tied the whole thing together with a dark grey acid finish. Finally, some handpicked plants and shrubbery was added to set the mood for sunshine or rain, and cool winter evenings,” the architect continues.
Sitting in a garden with a view of the sky; with works of art hanging amidst greenery and flowers, guests can relish on the varied delightful cuisines of the Courtyard.
One can start with the Bengali street food, served up with a twist or some fusion Dim Sum. Others may enjoy the exotic Asian noodle bowls with an authentic touch of Thai and Schezwan. For more homely tastes, one can try the continental classics as well as Old Dhaka’s famous ‘mutton kosha’ and ‘kala bhuna’ with ‘jeera rice’. The Courtyard is the perfect choice expressing the coalescence of space and purpose, transporting the guests into a surprise retreat.
The main dining area is given a minimalist gallery look and feel. The designers concentrated on getting the cooling and lighting just right for the diners and channelled their budget towards the rich teakwood and high-quality solid surface for the endless bar area for hygiene and durability. Some coloured upholstered pieces are positioned in two areas to soften up the lines and give that welcoming all-day coffee shop look. Great care was taken to plan the flow of incoming fresh supplies, proper storage and hygienic services. The back of the house and the dining areas have been separated with an L-shaped service bar and digital art which gives a backdrop of subtle colours and patterns to the service activity.
The design team further shared that the lighting design had been a challenge when the interiors needed to compete with the natural light of the patio. Essentially, a clever and variable ambient lighting system was adopted that modulates from the bright daytime settings to the night, as well highlights variable surfaces, while focusing on each of the artworks in the studio. Another major challenge for the design team was to use materials that would be one of a kind and which had to be built on-site with the desired physical qualities. In order to do so, the team had to go through rigorous sampling until they found the perfect match. Although the process was time-consuming, it was worth it in the end.

Reflections in Red

Photo of SHOWCASE SHOWCASE

Rich, dark ambience, play of light and shadow, lush floors and luminous lighting- the Red Chamber offers a glimpse of authentic Chinese food and atmosphere- smack dab in the heart of Banani.

To any family in Dhaka, going to a Chinese restaurant is reminiscent of time spent with family. Whether to celebrate some occasion or just to unwind after a stressful work week, Chinese restaurants are always the go-to choice for a family outing. To spend a lively lunch or dinner with family while enjoying authentic chinese food, Red Chamber is a fine choice.

The name of Red Chamber itself evokes a compelling visual in the mind’s eye. A large, imposing room dominated by the colour red, the heady scent of incense and the ubiquitous Chinese motif of a Dragon- that’s the scene that imagination brings forth. In reality, the Red Chamber presents quite a similar view. The name was adopted from the famous Chinese book by Gao E called ‘Dream of the Red Chamber’, explained Rafia Mariam and Shaker Ibne Amin, the couple who jointly owns the restaurant with family members. They wanted it to bear the aesthetics of post world war westernize China.


The restaurant’s decor starts from its entrance. Unlike the modern practice of transparent glass doors, the owners opted for a pair of heavy, red stained wooden doors embellished with metal. From here, the atmosphere builds and keeps building. The indoors do not disappoint. Keeping up with the opening theme, the inside of the restaurant is decked in rich, saturated tones.

“We wanted the interior to have a dark and elegant colour palette, mostly black, gold and reds,” explained the owner.

Red Chamber occupies a very beautiful space in terms of nature. There are lots of natural light as well as some green views. The lights are carefully planned to keep the restaurant looking equally mesmerizing day and night.

Total space of the Red Chamber is 3500 square feet, explained Rafia Maria Ahmad, the architect behind the restaurant’s glamour who grew up in a family full of architects and had a passion for it since childhood. It wasn’t easy making this space look like a classic Chinese grand ball room, as the owner desired. So the architect went with an open layout.

Full of wood paneling, customized furniture, Chinese screens and chandelier, and the use of mirrors make the space look a lot bigger than it actually is. Thanks to the partition, up to 100 people can be seated indoors, and because of the use of mirrors, they do not feel claustrophobic despite the dark color scheme.

The seating arrangements were planned keeping large groups in mind. And the furniture also hold a surprising twist.”The furniture including lamps and lanterns are not only customized, but also actually made by us. We took a hands-on approach to it,” the owner stated. Just like the layout of the restaurant was planned from the scratch by the owner and his family, they also contributed to the decor.

Red Chamber’s carefully curated menu is arguably just as – if not more – impressive as the decor. The owner decided to have a variety of Chinese cuisine. They have three chefs- each dedicated to a different type of food. One of them specializes in spicy Schezwan dishes, one is a dab hand at Hong-kong and Cantonese food such as noodles, and the other one is entirely dedicated to different types of dim-sums. This diversity is why the food at Red Chamber is anything but bland.


Inaugurated without much fanfare in November, 2018, Red Chamber has gone through three menu extensions so far, explained the owner. All their effort has undoubtedly made the place a success, and the customer base has been very supportive and appreciative of their efforts, he said.

The New Face of Tarka
Photo of Naila Binte Zakaria Naila Binte Zakaria

The newly relocated Tarka completely reimagines what was a casual eatery lacking the space required for its extensive customer base and created a refined and stylish restaurant, enhancing the overall experience for the diners. Spread over an expanse of 4000 sq ft, the freshly fitted venue embodies a timeless appeal.

The feature that primarily drew the owners towards the new location was its open-plan layout, possessing the wealth of the stunning city view. “While looking for a new location, our main intent centred on the customer experience. Since this place offered a fantastic panoramic view, we decided to settle on it”, says Ashfaq Rahman Asif, the Managing Director of Tarka. He further shares how the old restaurant had existing areas for development which can now be looked into. “As Tarka was our first venture in the food business, we learned immensely about the things we could improve. The former place was quite packed with a very straightforward menu.



For 6 years, we solely relied on the quality of our food without any promotional offers. There was a growing need for a bigger space as we also had to cater to corporate clients. Hence, relocation was inevitable. Starting from introducing newer items in the menu to serving larger crowds, we now have a vast area to explore”, he adds. The other two partners of Tarka are Nazmul Sakib and Nasima Haq. All the owners of Tarka ensure the food quality and pricing remain the same as before but the environment is much more polished and inviting.


The design concept emphasizes keeping a naturally well-lit and spacious look without screaming Indian. Instead, subtle hints of the Indian theme were fused through the wall decor, colour scheme and cutleries.
For designing the space, the obvious choice for the owners were Ar. Raisa Chowdhury and Aminur Rahman from White Design Solutions, who have previously designed other outlets for them. The design was executed in a contemporary style, preserving the Indian essence through pops of bright colours. The design project started in the second week of December and was completed within two months because of a relatively tight schedule. “When designing a space, settling on a theme first makes things easier. Next comes developing a unique concept and making cost-effective decisions.


Upon asking the owners, their requirement was quite clear- giving the diners an ambience of a ‘fine dining’ restaurant. Hence, visualizing the design was made simple; a formal restaurant, nothing like a cafe or a casual around the corner diner. Tarka was already an established brand so the aim was to create an ambience that gave the customers an experience better than before”, explains Raisa Chowdhury. The genre of Tarka may have gone through a complete transformation, but instead of fitting in with a fad, the design feels as though it has always been this way. “You could be a youngster or a more mature person but still feel like you are in the right place”, says Ashfaq Rahman Asif.

The design concept emphasizes keeping a naturally well-lit and spacious look without screaming Indian. Instead, subtle hints of the Indian theme were fused through the wall decor, colour scheme and cutleries. “With ample natural light coming in during the day, we decided to go for a bright shade as the primary colour. There weren’t too many walls to highlight either so we wanted to introduce bright upholstery. Although our first pick was green, the particular shade we wanted was not available in the local market and importing fabric would’ve been time-consuming. Hence, we settled for the existing royal blue. The decision worked in our favour as the colour helped to tie the place together”, exclaims Raisa Chowdhury. To give the restaurant a formal appearance, gold accents were added while the upholstered furniture remained in solid fabric colour.
tarka_october_2020

The materials for the place were kept fairly simple with teak boards for all the polished surfaces and furniture, particle boards for decorative wall claddings, and painted shelves. All the furnishings were custom-made from scratch. Lighting was of key importance for the project. The only items that were imported right after confirming the colour scheme were the individual mini lamps on each table. When lit in the evenings, the lamps take the entire ambience to the next level by giving it a cosy yet formal look. The rest of the lighting was kept subtle with individual zones being illuminated using few pendants. One statement chandelier adorns the entry area.


The design was executed in a contemporary style, preserving the Indian essence through pops of bright colors.
Undoubtedly, the star attraction of Tarka is its feature wall, being the only wall situated on the private corner of the place. Speaking of the highlighted wall, Raisa Chowdhury shares, “I feel, one eccentric corner or a highlighted piece in a monochromatic design is always nice as it helps to break the monotony. The chaotic Indian print on the wallpaper was the last touch we added, which added drama to the overall look.” The only challenge for the architect was the low height ceiling which was kept clean and basic to avoid any sort of attention. With its enticing décor and unbeatable food quality, it is safe to say that the new face of Tarka will satiate both your eyes and your stomach.

Why is real estate not a big business in BD like in Pak?? It should be considering the pop. density.
Real Estate IS big business in Bangladesh. It is one of the major sectors of the economy.

I don't know if you know otherwise.

Here is a small article,


The Real Estate Sector in Bangladesh
Posted on Sep 21, 2019 Category Blog, Real Estate Industry By Sadia T. Ahmed
The Real Estate Sector in Bangladesh



Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries. With an urban population of 30 million, the urban land shares are 2% of all lands and approximately 10% of the lands are not settled. 25% of the land is already being used for settlements and relatable human purposes.

building residential GDP


Due to numerous reasons, the urban growth and development of the country is Dhaka-centric. As Dhaka being the nucleus city, the current real estate sector is highly emphasized with variable prospects. The real estate sector has been introduced in our country nearly after the liberation. And from then on, it has become an earnest interest of the people. Real estate sector is an integral part of the country’s economy. This sector is directly contributing to the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) by building residential & commercial spaces, developing unused land, helping other businesses to grow, inviting local and foreign investments and generating employment.



With the major segment of the population with a middle and low-income group, ensuring standard housing for the whole population is not an easy task here. Though, the private real estate developers have been successful in meeting a large proportion of the national housing demand in the last 40 years. The real estate is developing day by day and proving its fluidity in case of demand and supply.

major segment of the population


The development of building structures being constructed in an unplanned manner is not always in favor of following the building codes. Real estate companies of the country are real growing towards the complete socio economic development. The real estate market of Bangladesh is fixed between 10-15 companies which hold approximately 95% of the entire market shares. The influencing factors are based on the expansion of the efficiency of the overall sector. This data has been collected from 220 customers, 15 real estate experts and 20 real estate professionals from capital city & the nearby outskirts.
