KADAWALA POWER HOUSE AT GINIGATHHENA

Powerhouses are often located on extremely scenic sites, yet typically the architecture for the powerhouses in Sri Lanka is no more than shelters to accommodate machines. The design challenges this notion and attempts to create an environment where the staff working long shifts will feel comfortable and productive. While taking care of all technical considerations, the design creates for the users, resting areas, meeting and dining areas, which provide both visual and experiential connection to the surrounding landscape.
