From the brief:
"A large, spacious central structure that functions as a reception, restaurant, kitchen, bar and communal area, including two bathrooms, with a central courtyard, in keeping with the traditional Sri Lankan courtyard home.
We have been exploring circular, oval and curved organic shapes for this building, and a theme of “living organisms”, drawing inspiration from nature at a cellular level. The considerations for the roof design are natural ventilation in a tropical climate, as well as heavy rainfall run-off, and protection of the underlying bamboo."
