Resource Centre & Open Air theatre,Cathedral Premises- Church of Ceylon Diocese of Colombo

A library cum archives building consists of a reading area, office space, and open air theater. The main features of the site were the Banyan tree and marshy land. There is a play of solid and void within the building where thick rubble walls enclosing private spaces creates solidity and glazed envelopes creates lighter and transparent layers which allow interaction of the outdoor and indoor environments. A fusion of traditional with contemporary style is brought about - by the rubblework relating to the buildings within the site.
