OCULUS STAFF QUARTERS IN JAFFNA

Oculus is a guest room quarters that is a part of the Jaffna Wind Power Park, which is located close to a lagoon and mud flat landscape. It’s a part of an axis/spine of wind power plants 16, in number that begins with the staff and guest quarters at the entrance and culminates in the office building at the end. It is a simple plan with a low budget designed without harming the surrounding vegetation. The guest quarters are for the visiting engineers and staff members.

The shallow pond at the core of the building with varying water depths that catches the reflection of the windmill acts as the eye of the oculus. It is a constant presence against a backdrop of lush vegetation mixed with clear skies.
