Asaf Khan House
The idea is to select exemplary representatives of distintinctive epochs or cultures in the history of Dhaka. Five distinctive houses from five different areas have been selected from the greater Dhaka Metropolitan area for this phase of the project.
Central Road is a neighborhood near Dhanmondi Residential Area in Dhaka. It consists of Shahbagh on the east side, Katabon on the south, Dhanmondi on the west and Kathalbagan on the north. Currently a dense neighborhood, the area is part of the planned residential area of Dhanmondi that was developed in the 1950s as an enclave for Dhaka’s new middle and upper middle class.
Exploring the house
A heritage building need not be a monument or landmark building; it can be representative of an epoch or period in the history of the city in many ways. Through this project, we have captured various perspectives in the form of virtual tours, timelines, stories, photographs, architectural features and locations.
