Cube House Award Winning Design

Alwis Place, Colombo 03

A two-unit house - one unit to serve as a home for his family and the other as an office for his practice. Internally, a modern urban character was amalgamated with contemporary Asian atmosphere. Tropical climatic conditions are dealt with by ample cross ventilation and natural light brought into the house paired with appropriate shading devices. Externally, several segments exist at different plains, each given a different colour emphasizing the contrast between the segments. A relationship between solids and voids has been created by intermediary grillwork.
