Brick House

Gothami Road, Colombo 08.

The Brick house gets its name from its main element, a two storey high rustic exposed brick wall. Main spaces of the house are "plugged in" to this wall which acts as an elemental backdrop. Timber and cut and polished cement floors along with white plastered enclosure walls add a refined elegance whilst the earthen tones of the exposed brick wall, adorned only with old black and white family photographs, gives the residence an overall rustic and classic ambience.

A special feature is the Rose apple tree that roots itself in the entrance car porch and winds its way through the slab to spread its dense crown of evergreen foliage over the first floor open terrace.

Subtle and warm lighting is used throughout the house to create that coveted warm and cozy interior - a safe haven in the midst of a busy neighborhood.
