Remotely located at the southern tip of Sri Lanka, this house is approached on foot down a sloping site towards the still concealed ocean. Vehicles are parked at the site entrance.
The roof garden to this single storey house, dug into the hillside, is all that is visible among the coconut trees when approaching. Part of the green roof lifts up to allow entry & decent ‘into the ground’ – a dark tunnel of steps and ramp, arriving in the light with the ocean in front.
This is the house entrance experience.
