This project presented to us by architect Channa Horombuwa is a conversion of a half-way done ordinary-looking house in Dompe, Sri Lanka into a contemporary piece of architecture. The house was at the half way mark, without a roof but with a collection of raw brick walls and slabs, when  the client realized that the outcome of the house was not going to be what he has been expecting. The new residence now consists of five bedrooms, three bathrooms, large living, dining, pantry, TV lobby and kitchen. The Gym is a separate section located next to the pool.

The large living room with a double height opens out to the large front garden on one side and to the swimming pool and deck on the rear side. The intension was to maintain the outdoor  indoor relationship very effectively with the use of large glazed panels. The entrance lobby or  the stair lobby is once again a double height space with a floating staircase running in one stretch as a feature on one side against a textured colored wall with a series of glass openings at random sizes. The garden runs around the house and joins the swimming pool at the rear end. The glass floor above the deep end of the swimming pool is a special feature and a popular seating space for the visitors. [Photos and information provided by architect Channa Horombuwa]
