Rooted in a Bangladeshi land, not far from Commercial capital of the region, Chattogram, SHIKOR is a country house that rediscovers in the simplicity of forms all the charm of rural lifestyle with an architectural language that is at once perceivably timeless but also one that is bound to ‘age’ and not ‘decay’. Bengali term “SHIKOR” used to denote “ROOTS”: The origin from which it all begins. “SHIKOR” is a celebration, an evocation of what ties one to land. It is the home retreat of a local family, whose history inevitably is intertwined with the past of the land on which it is built.
