This building is located by an urban fringe compromising of marshy ground built for an architect on 2720 sqft. It
is designed like a fortification sealed from colombo heat, traffic and noise of the road but once within reveals
unexpected views of the marsh and is totally permea-ble to the natural setting. Double heighted volume
acts as a work space whie a roof top living pavilion opens out to views of te marsh. Play of volumes creates
many areas for work and leisure with materials and tectonic devices to create a cooler microclimate within
the building.
