In the design of this 1st prize winning competition entry, the conceptual basis was to create a complex where traditional Bangladeshi architecture could be interpreted in a modem way for a setting in another country. The chancery is a 'L' shaped building arranged to form a courtyard with a pavilion structure which serves as the entrance hall similar to the traditional 'DOCHALA OR CHOWCHALA' of rural areas. From here are routes to the chancery building and the multipurpose hall. Entrance to this is over a water body meant for water lilies. The pitchedroof is reminiscent of Bangladeshi house and the surface material is brick. The complex also houses the High Commissioner's residence and staff accommodation. The buildings are staggered to follow the curve of the site, which allows prominence to the main chancery building.
