Ladies’ CollegeColombo 07

A new addition to the face of Ladies’ College, at the fringe of ‘Flower Road’ bordering the Russian Embassy. The 3 storey building houses a sleek archive & bookshop on the ground floor, spacious Junior Library on the first floor and elegant Table Tennis Room on the Second. The challenge of creating a building that blends in with the existing architecture was overcome by incorporating random rubble finishing lent from the boundary wall and adjoining buildings and overall architectural language of the rest of the school - portraying the excellence of the present complimented by the distinction of the past.
