PERMEABLE HOUSE, SRI JAYEWARDENEPURA

Located in a cultural significant yet sensitive location (close to the Parliament, Memorial, greens and park) in Sri Jayewardenepura ,this family home (on 14 perches) for a Doctor’s family of three, is linear building bounded peripherally by gardens. The entire building is permeable to this garden experience, with extends the feeling of the park into the home. The bedroom and livings areas of the building has double screens and fenestration that can be modulated to allow for a continued connection with the exterior, creating a building of openness and light (when desired) and at other times can be closed to create privacy and shade. Regulations were made a part of the design feature, with the design of a slender lifted roof (allows light and air) to create a floating effect.
