Linear house, Battaramulla
This slender home for a young couple, built on 10 perches, on a small budget. Designed to provide the couple the feeling of living within a garden, A series of courtyards dot the house blurring the boundaries between the inside and the outside and extending a sense of space within this narrow home. The beauty and serenity of the aquascape, the trees can be perceived throughout the house. The inner living room space can totally open out into the exterior pond and garden, through large sliding doors. Entertainment can always extend into the motor court, under trees and around the pond. The house aims to provide rich experiential qualities despite the narrow space, and a small construction budget.
