The “Loom Shed” is a new design that employs a traditional Bangladeshi residential architecture with contemporary elements that give it a modern twist. The building has a simple layout comprising a large open space to accommodate the loom machines, a buyers’ lounge, a dining space for workers, a prayer area and washrooms. The factory workers took an active part in the building process and put their knowledge of vernacular building techniques to use. The whole structure is erected on an artificial waterbody and supported by upcycled gas pipes that act as steel columns. The high ceiling, bamboo screen-walls and open space design allow natural light and ventilation, thereby eliminating the need for artificial air-conditioning or lighting.
