Samuel House Award Winning Design

Alwis Place, Colombo 03

In a tightly woven urban fabric, stands this soaring residence shrouded in mystery. A minimalistic exterior gives way to an internal layout unravelling pleasant surprises at every turn, with curious niches and delightful spaces. These are created at different levels crafting vertical & horizontal continuity, facilitating the wind tunnels for permanent ventilation. A contrasting light quality exists within louvered corridors and rubble flanked stairway. Living & dining areas focus on the pristine lawn fringed with trees; the foliage on the roof terrace visible from the garden tie together a visual garden scape.  Implementation of ‘green’ concepts pushes this scheme to the forefront of contemporary urban dwelling.
