The Luke water treatment plant with pure drinking water bottle and jar production facility, a custom-designed facility for a manufacturer, represents collaboration between a client and an architect in developing a spatial strategy that integrates production goals with the well-being of employees. Key design objectives focused on transparency & a single volume that makes full use of the site as well as the use of local materials like wood and bamboo, fully natural light & ventilation reduced energy use, and enhanced thermal performance. The architect responded with a single, large structure where administration and production spaces were integrated under one roof, breaking down hierarchies between front- and back-of-house functions. The wooden louvers with glass in southern and northern façade, as well as gardens give each user access to natural light and views of nature; the spaces also provide recreational areas for the workers on river side, Signalling a departure from the generally poor standards of places of work around Bangladeshi manufacturing sector. The Luke pure drinking water factory sets a new benchmark for the design and construction of factories that priorities architectural design and the comfort of the users without significant cost premiums. The result can shows possibilities with a strong business mandate that seeks to inspire other industrial persons to be more engaged and more passionate about the environment and the planet.
