Contemporary Residence in Sri Lanka by Architect Channa Horombuwa

Vijitha Lalith Lokuge Freshome 15 Contemporary Residence in Sri Lanka by Architect Channa Horombuwa

This three storied, seven bedroom house, owned by Vijitha & Lalith Lokuge was designed by architect Channa Horombuwa and is located in Boralesgamuwa, Sri Lanka. Here is the information we received from the architect:  “This L-shaped house with its tall blind walls cut down the noise and congestion of the main road and fully opens out to the garden designed next to the adjoining open land. The ground floor consists of two bedrooms in addition to the Living, Dining, Pantry, Home theatre room and other service areas. The First floor facilitates, three bedrooms including the master bedroom and their attached bath rooms in addition to the TV lobby and gallery space. The second floor consists of two bedrooms with two bath rooms and a study area. Leading out from the terrace of the second floor is a glass stairway to the roof top garden and bar; a fantastic space for entertaining under the stars.

The main feature of the house is the floating staircase made out of stainless steel and wood. Two straight flights run parallel to each other through the triple height volume in the centre of the house. The large double height living room opens out to the garden and has been located towards the right side of the entrance lobby to maintain privacy. The tile cladded double height back wall of the living room supports the glass panels which touches the roof ceiling to maintain the floating effect of the single sloping roof of the living hall. Use of large glazed panels help to bring lot of day light into the house and as a result the every corner of the house is well lit with reflected sunlight. Direct and indirect light effects maintain a dramatic appearance inside the house at night. Selection of light fittings too has been made to strengthen the modern look of the house.”

    It’s amazing how much you can do with just the simplest monochrome colors. There’s still nothing like a good piece of glass to bring into a room a contemporary feel.

    I have seen this house personally, there are so many uncommon creations are there, which are not highlighted (Glass door from garage to the lobby dining to the garden access). And sue of land to maximize the garden space.
